The 2017 Reserva Merlot from Maipo has some 13% Carmenere in the blend. It fermented with selected yeasts and aged in barrel for ten months. It has a creamy personality, with some balsamic aromas, wild berries and a medium-bodied palate with a soft texture and tender mouthfeel with polished tannins. 400,000 bottles produced. It was bottled between August and September 2017.
