2019 Montevista Merlot, Maule Valley, Chile
A wine with poise, elegance and restraint. The nose has plenty of ripe and juicy notes with plum, cherry and bramble fruit aromas. The palate has lots of plum, as well as herbal notes and a lovely sappy finish. It is light and has a lovely purity and freshness, with a hint of spice.
"This is typical of the wines from the Maule Valley with its red fruited freshness on the nose its fleshy richness on the palate ripe, sweet black plums and cherries. The tannins are discreet mid suppleness the black fruits backed by dark chocolate. There is a balancing freshness at the back a touch of spicy bramble but it fills out on the finish with depth of flavour ripe fruit. This easy drinking red is great just as a glass of wine, it certainly suits beef and venison but there is enough freshness for lamb and pork." Derek Smedley MW (2018)
