Valle Andino Merlot Reserva Especial

Save 24%

Valle Andino Merlot Reserva Especial has complex aromas of mild pepper spice, red berry fruits and a touch of smoke. Balanced and full of sweet plum and berry fruit on the palate, this integrates very nicely with the smokey oak, the juicy acidity and the ripe, unobtrusive tannins. The finish is elegant and lasting.

 Tab 2
Chile’s Colchagua Valley shares its home with the Rapel Valley and Merlot thrives here, as this Reserva Especial bottling proves. This is a relatively cool area that allows Merlot to retain its vibrant acidity. To increase the depth of colour and the intensity of its dark fruit character, Valle Andino blends 10% of Carmenère with the Merlot, and about three quarters of the blend is finished in older oak barrels for 9 months prior to bottling.
