Vinification Details

  • The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness and undergo Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats.

History

  • Chile has a long viticultural history for the New World, with winemaking dating back to the 16th century. French varietals were introduced in the mid-19th century and in the early 1980s, stainless steel vats became popular to preserve the freshness of the wines. Exports grew very quickly as quality wine production increased, Chile becoming the fifth largest exporter of wines in the world.

Regional Information

  • Central Valley is Chile's most productive and internationally known wine region. It is located directly across the Andes from Argentina and contains four wine growing sub-regions: the Maipo Valley, the Rapel Valley, the Curicó Valley and the Maule Valley. The region is large and diverse in terms of climate, and as such produces various styles of wine.

Lockdown wine

3 stars

Bought this due to the high customer ratings - but it didn't quite live up. I expect a Merlot to be quite smooth, and at 12.5% and well recommended this had the makings of an 'easy' red, so bought a dozen. However we found it had to be above room temperature to be anything like a smooth wine, and especially from a cool garage it had dull taste. But mustn't grumble, nearly finished the batch now, and it will be remembered as our April 2020 'lockdown' wine.

Soft and mellow

5 stars

This is a beautifully soft and mellow wine - not too much tannin, which suits my palette. It's my very favourite wine. Will suit others like me, who are not looking for complexity, but still has a full flavour and is not wishy washy....

Delicious

5 stars

One of the smoothest Merlots I have ever had. Looked to find where I bought so I can get some more. Had with steak and a stilton sauce. 10 out of 10 I never do reviews but this is so special a wine.
