Santa Rita Merlot Reserva 2011
In our 120 Chardonnay we combine grapes from different vineyards from the central zone in order to attain a fruity, elegant wine, in the coastal zone with a stronger Pacific Ocean influence, we attain freshness and citric combinations, the pre-Andean area brings tropical fruits and sweetness providing an amber-colored wine with greenish overtones, well-balanced, refreshing and round.
Ruby color. Médium body and aftertaste. (cabernet sauvignon 120)
External Reviews for Santa Rita Merlot Reserva
Pale yellow. Musky aromas of pink grapefruit, lime zest, herbs and dried flowers. Juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are complicated by tarragon and mint notes, gaining sweetness on the back end. Finishes with good breadth, a touch of heat and echoes of lime and honeysuckle.
Pale straw. Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are straightforward and pure. Clean and brisk on the palate, with racy citrus and pear flavors and good mineral snap. The brisk finish offers modest persistence. This is an excellent value in refreshing sauvignon blanc.
Medium straw. Varietally accurate citrus, melon and herbal aromas are precise and energetic. Green apple and lemon dominate on the palate, with fleshier melon and peach emerging on the back half.
A forward style, with tasty pippin apple and lime notes that have good snap on the finish. Drink now.
The medium straw-colored 2007 Sauvignon Blanc ldquo;120rdquo; exhibits an attractive bouquet of spring flowers, citrus, and lemon-lime followed by a crisp, refreshing wine with a clean finish. Should be consumed over the next 1ndash;2 years. They are both excellent values.
Reflective of a good vintage for Sauvignon Blanc, this simple but delicious wine features pretty flower blossom and citrus aromas backed by fresh apple, orange and lime flavors. Itrsquo;s clean, crisp and balanced across the palate. Perfect for drinking upon purchase.
Clean and nice, with an open yet crisp personality. The wine shows more than adequate lemon, green apple and passion fruit notes, while the finish is surprisingly long. A winner in its class, with zest and pop.
