Variety: 100% Merlot
Type of Wine: 6 month oak-aged dry late harvest red wine
Vineyard Estate: Viña Amelia
Winemaking: Late hand harvest at the end of August.
Red vinification and aging for 6 months in American oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Bright and intense cherry red color with purple mulberry undertones. Complex aromas of plum, cherries, chocolate and jam. Full bodied and velvety wine with sweet tannins and a smooth but long finish.
Wine pairing: Meat, foie, stew, ham, blue cheese with nuts and desserts.
Peculiarity: Just like Jamón Ibérico, Extremadura is one of the few regions in the world where late harvest of merlot grape can be done in August, therefore harvesting under optimal healthy conditions for the grape. The result is this elegant and full bodied wine with sweet and pleasant tannin.
