Merlot Estate

Curico Valley

The Merlot Estate comes from vineyards in the Curicó Valley. Most have sandy-loam soils with moderate to high vigour. The local climate has cold, rainy winters and a long, dry growing season with warm to hot afternoons, cool nights, and frequent morning fogs. This combination delays ripening and helps produce intense flavours and good concentration in the grapes. The Curicó Valley has ideal conditions for developing distinctive primary flavor profiles that lend interesting fruit intensity to the wines.
