RM75.20

Grape Variety:

85% Merlot, 15% Carmenere

Tasting Notes:

With a ruby-red colour, the wine has a nose dominated by primary fruit, including fresh red berries and black plum. There are also notes of sweet spice, and thanks to the 8 months in French oak, very delicate aromas of vanilla, mocha, and nuts. The palate is balanced and smooth, with medium body and a long finish.

Description

VINEYARDS
The vineyards are located in our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Its soils are derived from granite in different degrees of decomposition with varying slopes, effective rooting depths, organic matter, and types of geological formations, which makes these two terroirs very interesting.
Apalta is characterized by its colluvial and alluvial influences with varying depths and textures in the highest zones and more homogenous zones in the lower sectors due to the influence of the Tinguiririca River. Its Mediterranean climate gives us summers with cold nights and hot days, which helps slow ripening in our vineyards.
Marchigüe presents shallower soils with moderate slopes, primarily of colluvial origin and a presence of angular stones at shallow depths. The climate is more severe than in Apalta and presents more wind and solar radiation as well as lower precipitation due to its location close to the Coastal Mountains.
