Merlot, Casa Azul, Rapel Valley 2017
Casa Azul, Rapel Valley
Casa Azul is a large producer situated in the Rapel Valley in Chile's central zone. The grapes for their wines are sourced from both the Rapel Valley and the Curico Valley where the rich alluvial soils combine with a Mediterranean climate to produce wines with a characteristic freshness. This is very much a new world style of Sauvignon - crisp intense and fruity. The grapes are sourced from the Rapel Valley and the wine is unoaked.
Dark ruby in colour. Characteristic Merlot scents of red plum, blueberry and black fruit. Medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a juicy acidity and faint peppery notes. The finish is lingering revealing further black fruit flavours.
