- Winery:: Teperberg
A vividly colored red wine characterized by its scents of young fruit, particularly cherry and strawberry. Its soft, pleasant body is rich and well-balanced, with a delicate, soft finish.
The Merlot grapes arrived to the winery in the morning after being mechanically harvested.
The grapes were separated from them stems and after a gentle pressing, the must is transferred with the skins and seeds into stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation. The fermentation lasts for 7 days, at a temperature of 26°C, under different conditions required to generate the color, flavors, and aromas typical of this variety.
After fermentation is complete, the grapes are gently pressed in the pneumatic press and transferred to an insulated stainless steel tank to commence natural malolactic fermentation, which is a fermentation process intended to stabilize and soften the wine.
After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to French and American oak barrels to mature for six months.
