Santa Emma Reserve - Maipo, Chili - 2017
STYLE: Deep violet-ruby red in color. The nose is elegant, sophisticated, and complex with fruity notes of black cherries and plums mingled with tobacco, coffee, and toast. Well structured and round with ripe tannins and abundant texture and a long finish.
VINEYARD: The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.
WINE & DINE: Pair with grilled meats, well-seasoned dishes, stews, and ripe cheeses.
