Morande Estate Reserve Merlot 2021
Morande Estate Reserve Merlot
Morande Estate Reserve Merlot has fresh red fruit aromas of raspberries and cherries, with notes of white pepper and cedar. On the palate, the cool climate is perceptible in its fruit with its tense acidity and great juiciness. Medium-bodied, with elegant tannins and great freshness.
The fruit of this merlot comes from our Romeral property in the Maipo Valley, known for its very high quality red wines. The vineyard was planted at high density (10,100 plants / hectare) to produce 1 kg of grapes per plant and obtain extremely concentrated wines of the highest quality.
"When Pablo Morandé founded Viña Morandé in 1996, he did it with a great vision for the future and with the same audacity that drove him, years earlier, to be the first person to plant vines in the Casablanca Valley.
Adopting this pioneering view as our own, our winery created soon after a wine range named “Aventuras” (Adventures). Our purpose was to highlight the unknown diversity of Chilean terroirs and to draw attention to the old vines planted in the vineyards of the Secano Interior (Interior Dryland) of the Maule and Itata regions.
But we also aimed at using less renowned varieties that have been traditionally grown there. It may be worth remembering that, since the very beginning of Viña Morandé, the old vineyards grown in the Secano have had a special meaning for our winery. On one hand, Maule, and particularly the area of Cauquenes, is the place of birth of our founder.
And on the other, our winery has developed an important viticultural work throughout the years in its different terroirs, crafting wines that have been present since the first day in our portfolio." - HOME - Morandé English (morande.cl)
