Pato Torrente Merlot, Central Valley, Chile, 2020 £6.75
Grape variety, Merlot with a splash of Carmenere and Tintorera.
This unoaked fruity Merlot is packed full of ripe berries with a subtle hint of chocolate. Generously fruity with soft tannins, this is ideal to drink on its own or as an accompaniment to meaty dishes, pasta or cheese.
This Merlot is made from grapes grown in Chile's Central Valley, whose vineyards are watered by the cold, crisp streams that cascade from the Andes and that are at home to the brightly-coloured Torrent Duck, "Pato Torrente".
