Merlot Tradition Reserve Chateau Los Boldos 2017
This bargain of a Merlot is bright ruby-red in colour, with aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, blackcurrants and a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is balanced with velvety tannins and a soft, elegant finish. 60% of the wine spent six months in French oak barrels before bottling to soften the tannins and add complex layers of flavour.
It would be perfect with a cassoulet, and I think it goes with Camembert rather well.
Los Boldos as 170 hectares of vineyards which benefit from a Mediterranean climate. A portion of the vines were planted in 1948. The clear, bright skies during the summer and the high diurnal temperature range are ideal for growing fruit that maintains fresh acidity whilst ripening to perfection. The nearby Cachapoal river also moderates temperatures, while stony alluvial soils in the vineyard ensure low yields.
