Concha y Toro ‘Marques Casa Concha’ Maule Merlot 2015

Merlot from Chile
Review Date : 19-Oct-2017
Full, deep, black-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter edged. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of black plums, blackberries and blackcurrants along with notes of cassis and dark herbs. The fruit aromas form a dense and integrated heart. Medium-full bodied, this is fulsome in fruitiness with black plum and blackcurrant flavours entwined with cassis and dark herbs with subtle nutty oak. The flavours are mouthfilling, and show with vibrancy and freshness. The fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction providing a firm structure with bright acidity enlivening the palate and lifting the herbal notes. The wine carries to a lingering, slender finish. finish. This is a mouthfilling Merlot with black plum and curranty flavours showing some herbal notes on a fine-grained palate with good energy. Serve with herb-marinated lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6-8 years. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘San Clemente’ vineyard, Maule, from vines planted 1990-1998, fermented to 14.2% alc., the wine aged 18 months in French oak, with a portion in 5000 L foudres. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $31.99
