2019 MONTE VIDE EU (alcohol 15%) Red dry wine
Red dry wine VINEYARD: Las Violetas (Canelones) / Melilla (Montevideo). VARIETAL BLEND: Tannat Tempranillo Merlot
This is probably Uruguay’s best red blend, a world-class cuvée with 45% of Tannat, 35% Merlot and 20% Tempranillo. Vinification of the three varieties happens separately, with manual selection of the grapes berry by berry. Fermentation at 26°C, with 2 pump-overs and a pigeage per day. Aging of the three varieties separately between 9 and 18 months, depending on the plot ripeness and organoleptic individuality in French and American oak barrels. This red is subtle, refined and effortlessly harmonious, with top notes of violet, sweet spices and cut grass, a palate of cassis, plum and strawberry, nuanced tannins and a detailed, satisfying finish.
