- 100% Merlot
Santa Alegra Merlot, Valle Central, Chile
A very smooth, juicy Merlot from Chile that is full of ripe plum and red berry fruit, medium weight and slightly spicy on the palate, and with a generous fruit-filled finish.
With vineyards strategically located between the Andes in the east and the Coastal Range in the west, Santa Alegra is blessed with an ideal climate for producing classic varietal wines, recognised for their class, elegance and ability to accompany food.
The vineyards are situated in the Valle Central, where the climate is strongly influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountain range.
The grapes were destemmed and crushed, and the must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
