Merlot, Calbuco, Chile 2015
The Calbuco vineyards are located in Chile`s Central Valley, which is the strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes.
The nose is a heady mix of dark fruits, blackcurrant and plum with distinct smokey notes and a hint of spicy pepper. The palate is equally powerful, with a lovely smooth texture. There is good acidity though, with juicy plummy notes, blackcurrant, slightly savoury tannins and a creamy sweet vanilla note.
This is a great week-day wine - easy to drink with a lovely, long after-taste.
