Ruby color. Médium body and aftertaste. (cabernet sauvignon 120)
External Reviews for Santa Rita Merlot Reserva
Crisp and clean, this straightforward white offers apple and pear flavors with some concentration and good balance. Will blossom with food.
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.
Light and crisp, offering apple and herb flavors with a short clean finish.
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.
