Viu Manent Merlot 2016 - 750ML
Ruby red with violet nuances and intense aromas of spices and abundant ripe fruit such as plums and black cherries along with a bit of cinnamon. The palate is juicy and medium bodied with very good balance.
The grapes were destemmed and crushed into a stainless steel tank. Alcoholic fermentation took place with selected yeasts at 24º–25ºC with light extraction through just 4 pump overs per day and ending with a post-fermentation maceration for approximately 1 week. Malolactic fermentation occurred normally. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 6 months period, and the rest remained in stainless steel and cement tanks. The different components were later blended, lightly filtered, and bottled.
Aged for 6 months in previously used Fernch oak barrels.
The grapes for this wine come from different Merlot vineyards in the Colchagua Valley with an average age of 15 years
