Santa Rita Merlot Reserve 750ml 2007   
Sku: 2667

The dynamic Reserva Series has a well-structured, fruity and youthful style, perfect for any occasion. The winemaker’s objective is to create wines that optimally reflect the typical characteristics of each variety, both in aromas and flavors. At the same time, these wines are elegant and delicately balanced with a complex structure, high concentration and round, long-lasting expression.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep ruby red with violet hues Bouquet - A complex aroma that combines ripe black fruit and sweet plum, enhanced by vanilla and spice notes Taste - Well concentrated, with very ripe, almost sweet tannins, resulting in a complex and balanced wine; a captivating, full-bodied red with a persistent and pleasant finish

Wine maker notes
All vineyards are planted in vertical shoot position in order to obtain good sunlight exposure and airing. The crop is restricted to 7-8 ton/ha so as to get concentrated grapes. During the season, irrigation becomes a critical factor for this variety since it is very sensitive to water stress. The idea is to reduce water availability down to pea size to produce medium size berries and vigor control, then allowing the roots to feed the plant with enough water for good ripening, without any excess, while keeping a small growth of leaves at the tip of the shoots.

Technical notes
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food pairing
Carpaccio of meats, stews, paellas, pastas with tomato sauces, quiche, or soft cheeses such as Gruyere.
