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.
External Reviews for Santa Rita Merlot Reserva
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Chill it and kill it, and you probably wonrsquo;t be disappointed. There isnrsquo;t a lot of character to the nose, but the palate offers round melon and citrus flavors supported by pretty good acidity. Itrsquo;s a little sugary but sound and tropical. More than 200,000 cases produced, so it should be widely available.
