Santa Rita 120 Merlot is a fruity Chilean wine. Plummy fruits and spices surround the wine with a very nice soft finish.
This is a fruit expressive and approachable merlot, the lifted bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, game and spice notes with gentle nutty complexity. It is juicy and vibrant on the palate, and delivers attractive fruit intensity and silky texture, nicely structured by delicately drying tannins. The wine is immediately appealing and flavoursome with a lingering smooth finish.
According to legend, 120 patriots, exhausted after a long, hard battle during the fight for Chile’s independence, reached the land belonging to Santa Rita. On that fateful night in 1814, these forces of liberty found refuge in the estate cellars. Today, within these same cellars, our award-winning 120 wines are crafted to honour their heroic character.
120 Merlot is a red-violet colored wine, with intense fruity aromas reminiscent of red fruit and flower, vanilla and tobacco. It is a full-bodied, elegant wine, well-balanced in acidity and mature tannins developing a fresh, fruity finish.
