|Merlot from the Veramonte estate in Chile’s cool Casablanca Valley gets seriously long hang-time which intensifies both the gorgeous purple color and intensity on the palate. This cool climate wine is one of Chile’s only true Merlots, which accounts for its structure and purity of fruit. Many of Chile’s vineyards are planted to a mixture of Merlot and Carmenère, an old Bordeaux varietal that was originally believed to be Merlot in Chile.
