    Discover Merlot from a region known for producing richly flavored reds in 2019 Tripantu Merlot Reserve Maule Valley. This dry, medium-bodied wine is from an award-winning, family-run Chilean winery. Deep red in the glass, this easy-drinking Merlot opens with aromas of blackberries and blueberries accented with a touch of smoke. The fruit-driven palate has pronounced dark berry flavors, with added complexity from the grapes being aged in oak barrels for six months. Tannins are soft and persistent, leading to a smooth finish with balanced acidity that makes this wine quite food-friendly. Merlot from cooler climate regions such as Chile tends to display qualities similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, having more structure and savory flavor notes. “Tripantu” or “when it all began” is what the Mapuche people of Chile say to recount their stories. This Tripantu takes us to the vineyards of Chile, specifically Maule Valley, which is one of the country’s largest winegrowing regions. Maule Valley has a climate in which intense sunlight, cool nights, and maritime influences allow grapes to ripen slowly. Tripantu is produced by a third-generation family of winemakers with farming in their blood and a passion for viticulture. Terraustral Wines consistently crafts high-quality wines that “reflect all magic corners of our Chilean land.” Enjoy their Tripantu Merlot with turkey, chicken, soft cheeses, risotto, and sautéed vegetables. This wine’s recommended serving temperature is 60–64° F.
