These attractively packaged wines show the kind of style that has put Chilean wines on the map over the past few years.
This winery is now at the forefront of modern winemaking in Chile, placing great emphasis on using non-invasive winery techniques so that the purest possible fruit can be expressed.
Wine maker, Constanza Schwarderer, concentrates on working in the vineyard in order to optimise the quality of the grapes produced. This is evident in these fruit-driven wines which show intense varietal character.
Grapes: 100% MerlotViticulture: The temperate Mediterranean climate, with warm days and cool nights, ensures the grapes obtain optimum maturity. Grapes were hand picked and carefully selected.
Vinification: The fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 15 days, to maximize the fresh fruity flavours of this succulent wine.
Taste: Soft round approachable style with blackberry fruit on the nose and palate.
Serve: Ideal with Italian food, gruyere cheese, paella and carpaccio.
Very smooth and drinkable, would definitely recommend.

Delicious wine and surprisingly intriguing for this part of the world. I was expecting a more 'brutal' flavour, but my tastebuds were caressed. Extremely good value and would highly recommend... I will be back for more as the case will not last long
