Producer: Bodega Los Espinos
Los Espinos combines cutting edge winemaking, with regional typicity to provide a range that is at the beating heart of Chile. The Los Espinos Merlot is sourced from selected vineyard sites across Chile's Central Valley. The cooling influences of the Andes and the Humboldt current together with the diurnal temperature difference here allows for slow ripening so that the grapes develop maximum flavour. This is a simply outstanding wine for the money, soft super-juicy ripe plummy fruit and a long full-flavoured finish. A lovely drink on its own or enjoy with pasta or barbequed meats.
Deep, vivid red with a very expressive nose full of plum, cedar and sweet fruits. Incredibly pure and ripe fruit fills every corner of the mouth with rich cassis and sweet spices. The tannins are ripe and subtle and the finish rounded. Plenty of "wow factor". A lovely drink on its own or enjoy with pasta or barbequed meats.
