Don Melchor Red
The bunches were harvested manually, alcoholic fermentation carried out in stainless steel tanks for a duration of 9 days, with temperatures between 25°C and 26°C. At the end of the maceration period, each tank was uncovered, tasted and selected by the oenological and viticultural team of Viña Don Melchor, and then sent to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation. It was again transferred to barrels to finalize its aging process before being bottled. Aging for 15 months in French oak barrels (71% new and 29% second use). Of deep violet color, with great intensity and aromatic complexity of red fruits accompanied by oral notes of violets and roses. In the mouth, it is a tasty wine, with a smooth attack, to show great freshness, along with the elegance and power characteristic of Puente Alto. It is a wine with a velvety texture, exuberant body and a very long and persistent finish.
