Description

COUSINO MACUL ANTIGUAS RESERVA MERLOT 2015

Of an elegant red cherry color with violet touches, this Merlot is outstanding for its fruitiness, specially black fruits such as blueberries and mulberries. It shows a perfect balance, with a silky and fresh texture, medium acidity, docile and velvety tannins. Good volume in mouth that unfolds into a long and elegant ending. Quite a complex wine for the given price, we recommend decanting for at least 30 min.

After a careful manual harvest, elaboration of the wine began with seven days of cold maceration at 50°F. Then the juice is fermented during 9 to 10 days at an average temperature of 79 º, using different strains of yeast. A 20 days post fermentative maceration enhances the flavors and bouquets, as well as smoothing the tannins. The wine matures in French oak during 10-12 months to be subsequently clarified before bottling it.
