Pinot Noir Merlot Syrah South America Chile & Argentina
This South American concoction of Pinot Noir, Merlot, & Syrah features lively red fruit notes with a hint of oak and spice. Deep blush in colour, this medium-bodied red has soft, dry tannins, with flavors of plum, cherry, and red berries. Delicate notes of spice, smoky oak, and red berry idle on the finish.
This fusion comes from three reknown South American regions. The Pinot Noir is from Colchuagua Valley in Chile, which enjoys a superior growing climate marked by the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean, and steep slopes of well-drained soil. The Merlot originates from one of Chile’s most southern wine regions, Maule Valley, home of extreme sunshine, hot days, and cooler nights than its northern neighbours; these attributes combine for a long growing season, and help balance ripeness and acerbity in the grapes. Across the Andes in Argentina, desert terrain and high altitudes mold the aromatic, intense Syrah.
Best paired with roasted or grilled meats such as steak, veal chops, beef tenderloin or brisket. Meat-based pizza, shepherd’s pie, meatloaf, or a Portobello club sandwich are also great matches. Team with cheeses like Asiago, Le Chevre Noir, and Manchego.
