Portillo Merlot

Portillo Merlot 750ml    
Sku: 1072098*

Situated on a high plateau in the Uco Valley of Argentina’s Mendoza region, the Portillo (meaning “path” or “gateway”) winery and vineyards are dedicated to making superb quality wines for everyday enjoyment. Harmony with nature is readily apparent in every aspect of this property, which is designed to deliver wines that capture and respect the pristine beauty of their birthplace. The Merlot grapes were grown in very select plots in the estate vineyard Finca El Oasis, at 3,445 feet above sea level. Alluvial soils lay atop a gravel bed, with good permeability and drainage.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep crimson red Bouquet - Scents of cranberry and blackberry mingle with an intriguing hint of spice Taste - The palate bursts with soft cranberry and plum, followed by delicate, silky tannins

Wine maker notes
The grapes are hand-harvested to preserve the optimum freshness of the fruit. After destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where cold maceration takes place at a temperature of 45 -50F. Fermentation lasts for 10 to 15 days. After fermentation, the wine is racked by gravity, with no pumping, and is aged in stainless steel tanks.

Technical notes
100% Merlot

Food pairing
Well matched with hearty stews, mushroom risottos and robust pasta dishes.
