In mouth the Cono Sur Merlot Rose surprises with its excellent structure, balanced acidity, fruit intensity and pleasantly ripe tannins. After just over a decade, Cono Sur’s original claim, ‘No family trees, no dusty bottles, just quality wine’ continues to inspire quality, innovation, style and creativity. Cono Sur continues to push the boundaries of winemaking in Chile. Lots of sunlight, hot days, cool nights and irrigation water coming directly from pure thawed Andean snow contribute to the production of the aromatically rich, pure and potential filled grapes. The vineyard has dark clay soil, with a Mediterranean climate which is warm in the day and cold at night. The grapes are mostly handpicked at the end of March through to the end of April.
