Single Estate / Merlot
The fruit for this wine comes from our Romeral property in the Maipo Valley, which is renowned for its very high quality red wines. The clay-loam soils of alluvial origin and the cool, dry climate endow the terroir with ideal characteristics for well-structured and highly persistent red wines. The vineyard was planted to high density (10,100 plants/hectare) in order to yield 1 kg of grapes per plant and obtain tremendously concentrated wines of maximum quality.
The grapes are handpicked and the bunches are selected in the vineyard. Once crushed, it is macerated at low temperature for 3 days at 5°C to obtain fruity aromas and a deeper colour. The fermentation temperature is kept at around 25ºC in order to achieve a gentle extraction and mild tannins. After malolactic fermentation, part of the wine is aged for ten months in French oak barrels that have been used a varying number of times, and then rests in the bottle for a further 6 months.
Of deep red color
this wine offers on the nose a fruit expression of cherries and raspberries with delicate notes of white pepper.
It feels very fresh on the palate, of medium body and with elegant tannins.
