This merlot is from the historic Peumo vineyards sityated on the old river terraces above the north bank of the Cachapoal river in the Rapel valley at 170m above sea level.
Dark and deep red. Rich and deftly balanced yet muscular red, with layers of complex currant, spice, wild berry and plum. Show off a nice touch of vanilla oak and mocha, adding a nice dimension. Though tannic now, this
wine should evolve. There's already some complexity beginning to develop out of its firm, quiet, supple core.
:18 months in French oak barrels (36% in new
and 64% 2nd use).
This has got to be one of the best bottles of Merlot on the market at this price, if you like Merlot try this!
