Tierra Antica Merlot 2018

Producer Note

We passionately believe in the quality, and quality-price ratio, of Chile. Our wine sourcer, Steve Daniel, spent his formative years in the Wine Trade introducing Chile to the wine public of Great Britain. Time and time again we return to Chile to look for great wines at great prices, working with a network of long-established contacts in vineyards and in wineries to obtain the best fruit and the best conditions in which to turn it into great-value wine! The Tierra Antica range includes a collection of attractively packaged wines which represent wonderful value for money.

Vineyard

Sourced from vineyards in the Central Valley, where the vines are vertically positioned, spaced at 1.5 x 2.2 metres apart and drip irrigated. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots and enhance the quality of the grapes.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 15 days, with two to three pump overs per day in order to extract the desired levels of flavours, colour and fine tannins. The wine was stabilised and then earth filtered before bottling.

Tasting Note

An intense cherry red colour with bright purple hints. Red and black fruit aromas of cherries and blackberries are interwoven with a subtle, spicy bay leaf character. On the palate the wine displays soft, sweet tannins, balancing acidity and a good structure.

Serving Suggestion

Enjoy this wine with rich flavoursome stews, roasted chicken or chargrilled hamburgers.

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
