La Junta Merlot Reserve Wood Box - Chile (750mL x 12)


This Merlot Reserve is a bright cherry-red color. The nose displays an
interesting combination of black fruit flavors such as blackberries and plums,
accompanied by light touches of smoke, coffee and mocha. Medium bodied
on the palate, with smooth ripe tannins that give way to a silky textured wine
with a pleasing finish.
Harvesting began on March 15, with the grapes handpicked and transported to the
winery in bins, where they were gently crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks.
Approximately 30% of the fruit underwent a cold soak at 10ºC (50ºF) for three to five
days to improve color extraction and maximize fruit flavors. Alcoholic fermentation was
carried out at 26º–30ºC (79º–86ºF) with three pumpovers daily.
The duration of post-fermentation maceration depended on the development of each
batch, and the wine was kept in contact with the lees for 10–20 days. Following this
maceration, 70% of the wine was aged for approximately six months in French oak
barrels to help round out the wine and smooth out the tannins. Once the final blend
was obtained, the wine was cold decanted and lightly filtered before bottling.
