Great Value Organic Merlot from Chile.
With a bright, deep ruby colour, this wine has red-fruit and plum aromas with touches of toast, vanilla and spice. On the palate there is more fruit with a nice tension between the plum and a slight leafy flavour. This Merlot has great body with good balance and silkiness.
The largest of the fine wine areas, Merlot is one of the stars of Rapel. You will see the name Colchagua on many Rapel wines, which is a small, high quality subregion towards the coast. There are also more unusual grapes here, such as Gewurtztraminer and Riesling.
