100% Merlot sourced mainly from the most coastal part of the Colchagua Valley.
Grapes were cold soaked at 10°C for 5 days to extract aroma and colour. Then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 12 days and kept on their skins to give structure and colour. After malolactic fermentation, 45% of the final blend was aged in first-use French oak barrels for 8 months to add complexity and roundness.
Aromas of ripe black and red fruits, blackberries and plums on the nose intermingled with delicious notes of pastry and milk chocolate. A touch of spice harmonises perfectly with light toasted notes from the French oak. Very well balanced with fresh acidity, medium body, well-rounded tannins, and a touch of fresh tobacco that lingers long on the finish.
