Vellas Valle Central Merlot 2019

A well-flavoured Merlot with notes of green plum and
finishing on a fresh note.


Producer Note
Bold wines with bold labels – if you've got it, flaunt it! Sourced from the rich Central
Valley vineyards and exhibiting all of the maximum-freshness fruit for which Chile is
famous, these wines certainly punch above their weight and lend argument to the
view that Chile is the world's most exciting wine region at the moment.


Vintage
The 2019 season was characterised by a lack of rain during the spring, followed by
hot temperatures during the summer. This resulted in low yields compared to
previous years, due to the effects of drought and water stress. The quality was good
to very good in most of the valleys, with the grapes being harvested in a very healthy
condition as the warm, dry weather reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. The
wines are rich in flavour with good balance and delicate aromatics.


Vineyard
The grapes were carefully sourced from selected growers in the Valle Central, which
encompasses the subregions of the Maipo Valley, Rapel Valley, Curico Valley and
the Maule Valley. The Central Valley is a 1,000 kilometre plateau which sits between
the Andes Mountains and the cool Pacific Ocean. The climate, with its warm sunny
days, cooler evenings and intense sunlight encourages a long growing season,
which is ideally suited to producing healthy grapes with concentrated fruit flavours.
The soils are fertile and the vineyards benefit from a natural irrigation from the melted
snow from the Andes.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested when they had reached full maturity and were
fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. This wine was made in an
unoaked style in order to retain the fruity characteristics of the Merlot variety.


Tasting Note
A quality and delicately complex wine, with notes of coffee and toffee on the nose,
alongside the more usual red plum flavours. Indecently consistent and representing
great value-for-money.
