Santa Alicia Gran Reserva Merlot
Santa Alicia Gran Reserve Merlot 2013/18 [75cl] Chile Santa Alicia's premium quality Maipo Valley Merlot, brimming with class. Concentrated, ripe and balanced. A fine style with plenty of plum and chocolate flavours. This wine was made with the best selection of grapes and great care. Santa Alicia turn out stellar Merlot's every year. A previous vintage was named Chile's Merlot of the Year by the IWSC. This particular vintage has been aged in French oak for 12 months, and aged in bottle for a further 8 months before release. Santa Alicia have been producing wines in the heart of Maipo Valley since 1954. With grapes from three select communes, a state of the art winery, and judicious use of the finest American and French oak barrels, we believe the wines represent the highest price/quality ratio in Chile. In 2007, they were named Chilean Wine Producer of the Year for "best overall results from a Chilean winery" in the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition in London. Santa Alicia possesses a very talented team of winemakers. Leading the team, is David González, with more than 30 years of experience. David contributes, together with his philosophy of perfection, extensive knowledge and the dedication of an artisan. For him, a glass of wine goes beyond the sensory pleasure, and turns into a bridge of communication between the art of creating a mythical concoction and its final consumers.
