Morandé Estate Reserve Merlot

Description

A real cool climate Merlot feel here, with lots of fresh red fruits such as raspberries and cherry, with notes of white pepper and cedar. The palate displays juicy red fruits with added spice and elegant tannins. This is a thoroughly enjoyable Merlot to enjoy any time of the year.

Extra Notes

Morandé was founded in 1996 by Pablo Morandé, and found immediate recognition both domestically and abroad. Morandé are true pioneers – they were the first family to develop the Casablanca D.O., recognising the fantastic potential of this cool-climate wine region. They also led the way in reviving old viticulture regions such as Maule and Itata, working with old dry-farmed bush vines and unconventional varieties such as Carignan, País and Cinsault. All of the wines are produced with grapes from Morandé’s own vineyards. Their winemaking philosophy is guided by seeking the right terroir for each grape variety, and with significant vineyard holdings they are well placed to achieve this.

Region

Maipo Valley

Maipo Valley is one of Chile's most important wine-producing regions. Located just south of the capital, Santiago, Maipo Valley is home to some of the country's most prestigious wines. It is often described as the 'Bordeaux of South America', and rich, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon is undoubtedly its most celebrated wine style, whilst Merlot is the unsung hero.
