Indomita, Nostros Merlot Gran Reserva, Maipo, Chile, 2020

Producer Profile

The dynamic winemaking team at Indómita skillfully craft wines from their vineyards in two of Chile’s very best regions.

The cooler climate Casablanca is great for Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer Maipo Valley offers classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère. Indómita produce superb, expressive wines that are both beautiful and stunning value for money.

Viticulture

Grown in Chile's Maipo Valley, where the summers are warm and sunny, with a cooling breeze and cold nights. The grapes for this wine are sourced from two lots in Longovilo, one on flat ground, and the other on a hillside. The soils are granite and clay with little organic matter, forcing the roots to run deep.

Winemaking

Classic alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25 - 28ºC The total maceration takes around 4 weeks before the wine is racked. Aged for 10 months in French and American oak.
