Wines of Chile / La Piqueta
La Piqueta Merlot
La Piqueta is a wine for explorers that helps you to safely navigate the slopes and varietals of Chile’s exciting wine landscape.
Deep purple in colour this wine has lots of fruity aromas white ripe plum and damson fruit flavours combine on the palate for a smooth, gently, spiced finish.
A perfect accompaniment to beef, game (deer or venison), rice, pork and lamb dishes.
Grapes are hand picked and transported to the winery in small baskets in order to preserve the bunches whole and undamaged. Then the grapes are destemmed and proceed to cold maceration (for 2-3 days at very low temperatures) to express the maximum the extraction of fruit aromas and soft tannins. After fermentation, a post-fermentation maceration is carried out to obtain a mature, complex and elegant wine with a soft, round palate.
