Metic, 'Merlot', 2019, Colchagua Valley, Chile

£9.99

Wonderfully juicy and clean Chilean Merlot. Nice berry aromas and a touch of herb too. It's got a little more depth of character and flavour than other Chilean Merlot's on the mass market, that extra couple of quid really does make a big difference here. Enjoy with all kinds of food or with a good book on a cold night!

Unlike other wines at this price, this has undergone premium techniques such as hand harvesting, wild yeast fermentation, and no fining. The result is an extremely high quality and expressive wine at this price.

The Metic wines are made for us by Luca Hodgkinson: a French/English/Spanish expat, who consults for many wineries in Chile and has his own business sourcing grapes from sustainable, and in many cases, organic vineyards. They make the wines with less manipulation than one would expect at this level and pride themselves on delivering premium results at an affordable price.
