Santa Rita Tres Medallas Merlot
TT$104.95 – TT$1,075
Intense and deep ruby-red wine with delicate violet hues. Black fruits such as plums and blackberries predominate on the nose along with subtle spicy, vanilla, caramel and toasted notes from its contact with French and American oak. The palate is big and voluminous, persistent and structured. Its soft and round tannins stand out, generating a wine with a great finish, fruity, intense and fresh.
Ideal with pastas, fatty fish such as salmon, and lean red and white and red meats. Recommended serving temperature is 16º–18°C.
The grapes are harvested in accordance with strict monitoring for ripeness and tasting the berries prior to harvest. Once picked, the grapes are transported to the cellar, destemmed, very gently crushed and deposited directly to the fermentation tank. During alcoholic fermentation, the must is controlled daily and temperatures are maintained at 25º–28°C so that the fermentation and extraction is smooth and generates more volume in the palate. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously, seeking greater development of aromas and complexity in the mouth. The final blend is aged with French and American oak in stainless steel tanks and then bottled.
