Santa Rita 120 Merlot 2010, Rapel Valley. Buy 2 bottles save £3
The 120 Series wines are named in honour of the 120 patriot soldiers who found refuge in Santa Rita's hacienda during the war for Chile's independence.
The cellars where they were hidden are still used for maturation of Santa Rita's wines to this day. Intense aromas of red fruits, accompanied by floral, vanilla and tobacco notes. Has a great feeling of volume in the mouth, with plentiful but super-soft tannins, and typically Chilean ripeness of fruit. An obvious choice for light red meat dishes and pasta, or even weightier fish such as salmon.
