Tasting Notes and Description

The Santa Rita 120 Heroes Merlot is a vibrant and inviting red wine that pays homage to a pivotal moment in Chilean history, embodying the spirit of bravery and resilience. This wine is part of the 120 series by Santa Rita, one of Chile's premier wineries, renowned for its rich winemaking heritage and dedication to producing wines of exceptional quality and character. The 120 Heroes Merlot is crafted from select Merlot grapes grown in the Central Valley, a region celebrated for its ideal winegrowing conditions, including its Mediterranean climate and diverse soils. These factors contribute to the development of Merlot grapes that are rich in flavor and ripe with potential, allowing Santa Rita to create a wine that is both accessible and expressive of Chile's vibrant terroir.

Upon tasting, the Santa Rita 120 Heroes Merlot showcases a soft and rounded texture, revealing layers of juicy plum, cherry, and subtle hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. The fruit-forward profile is balanced by soft tannins and a gentle acidity, making this Merlot incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Its approachable style and medium body make it an excellent pairing with a wide range of foods, from casual barbecues to more formal dining occasions. It complements dishes such as grilled chicken, pasta with red sauces, and lightly spiced vegetarian dishes, as well as being a great match for hard cheeses and charcuterie. The Santa Rita 120 Heroes Merlot is a tribute to the winery's legacy and a celebration of the 120 patriots who found refuge in Santa Rita's cellars during the fight for Chile's independence, offering a rich and satisfying wine experience that honors the past while delighting the palate in the present.
