Red Wine Finca Antigua Merlot 2016
Availability: In stock
A single varietal Merlot, this Spanish red wine was harvested during the second week of September. The must was fermented and macerated for 16 days in stainless steel tanks under a strict temperature control.
After that, Finca Antigua Merlot 2016, a characterful red wine from Cuenca, was aged for 8 months in French oak barrels.
Clean and bright, Finca Antigua Merlot has a cherry colour with some garnet tinges.
This Merlot exhibits the aromatic elegance which characterizes the variety. Suggestive aromas of red fruit, white flowers and herbs, gently nuanced by some spicy and toasted hints, the result of being aged for 8 months in oak.
This wine by bodega Finca Antigua is smooth, round and fresh. Balanced acidity, great definition and ripe tannins. Medium-long finish with remembrances of herbs and flowers.
