Santa Rita Merlot Reserva 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Deep and intense ruby red. Bouquet: A complex bouquet that combines fresh black fruits and spicy notes with elegantly defined oak to heighten the wine's chocolate and vanilla characteristics. Taste: A big and flavorful wine that is concentrated and persistent with elegant tannins. Serving Suggestions: Delicious with steak, barbecue, venison, game birds, and ripe blue cheeses.

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, by a distinguished entrepreneur of those times, Mr. Domingo Fernández Concha in the area of Alto Jahuel where the main installations of the winery are currently located. From the very beginning, he introduced fine French varieties, winemakers and the most advanced winemaking techniques. From the end of the XIX century until the mid 70´s, Santa Rita developed under the ownership of Mr. Vicente García - Huidobro, father of the famous Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro Fernández. In 1980, the Grupo Claro acquired the Santa Rita property, giving a strong impulse to the enterprise in all of its scope, introducing great technological improvements and wine elaboration techniques unknown in Chile at that time. At the end of the 80´s a great expansion period for Santa Rita starts, sustained by the great momentum experienced by its exports and the excellent reputation acquired by its products, which obtained important awards and worldwide recognition.

The wine has a green color with yellow notes of medium intensity. Intense fruity aroma with a citrus dominion and herbal background. On the palate it shows great concentration, elegant, fresh acidity and nice persistence.

This Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, clean and dry. It has a wonderful balance and refreshing acidity, and finishes long and crisp. A great match with broiled fish, scallops or a warm summer night.

Pale gold. Tangy aromas of lime, grapefruit, ginger and orange zest. Then surprisingly supple and round on the palate, with gentle tangerine and ripe apple flavors. A subtle, spicy, fresh wine that offers superb value.

Round yet crisp, this wine shows good structural balance without offering much fruit character; light apple and herb notes fade quickly on the clean, short finish. Drink now.

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.
