Cono Sur Los Gansos Merlot, Central Valley, Chile, 2015
A soft and serious Merlot, a wine of great typicity and remarkable fruit expression. This wine’s plum-red colouring is dark and intense. In nose, concentrated notes of black fruit and soft hints of sweet toasted oak. The palate surprises with its excellent structure, balanced acidity, fruity intensity and pleasantly ripe tannins. Undoubtedly to be drunk young. This Merlot can be served with steaks, burgers, duck, lamb and pork. It also goes quite well with rare tuna and foods flavoured with balsamic vinegar. It's also smooth enough to accompany a salad topped with cheese or cold cuts.
Cono Sur’s famous geese roam the vineyards freely throughout the growing season, eating the insects and pests that would, if unchecked, attack and damage the vines. Thanks to their insatiable appetite the grapes can grow without the need for spray pesticides. The balance of the ecosystem in the vineyard is preserved. Since its beginning, Cono Sur Winery has been deeply committed to creating eco-friendly practices that work hand in hand with high quality wine production.
