- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The Santa Rita winery was founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez in the same area of Alto Jahuel where its main facilities stand today. Santa Rita and its subsidiaries currently market their products in over 75 countries, always focusing on the premium and superfine segment. All the above forms the basis which has allowed Santa Rita winery to place itself in a privileged position as producer and leading exporter of quality premium and superior quality wines.
WINEMAKING: Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and the extraction level was defined as fermentation progressed. Pumpovers were generally more intense in the beginning of the process and reduced toward the middle or end. Post-fermentation maceration time was determined by the progress of each individual tank and varied from a few hours to 10 days.
TASTING NOTES: This is a wine to be enjoyed on all occasions. Fragrant aromas of fresh strawberries, plums and vanilla are complemented by a hint of dried herbs. Its sweet, well-rounded flavour, rich in fruity undertones, is enhanced by soft tannins and a pleasing note of oak.
