Deep ruby-red in colour, with a nose that presents aromas of red fruits, such as strawberries, some spice notes, and a light touch of coffee. The palate is nicely balanced with sweet, well-rounded tannins, good volume, and a long finish.

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine of which 923ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic. As South America’s largest organic producer, their spectacular vineyard and winery at Los Robles has the added benefit of being biodynamic and features the sensory delights of roaming Alpacas, dung heaps and dynamised biodynamic mixtures to treat the vineyards.

This Merlot comes from vineyards in Chile’s Valle Central. The grapes were hand picked in late April from selected blocks, in accordance with their optimal point of maturity. They were then transferred to our Las Palmeras facility for vinification. The process began with a 2–5-day pre-fermentation cold soak at 8º–10ºC (46º–50ºF), for an average of 2–5 days to extract primary aromas and colour. Alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts followed at temperatures controlled at 25º–28ºC (77º–82ºF) with a program of pumpovers determined by enological criteria based on grape maturity. Upon completion of alcoholic fermentation, some tanks underwent a post-fermentation maceration for 2–4 days, according to the characteristics of the wine.

This wine is ideal with lean red meats as well as white meats with lightly seasoned sauces, fresh and ripe cheeses, vegetable dishes, and pastas.
