Casa Azul is a large producer situated in the Rapel Valley in Chile's central zone. The grapes for their wines are sourced from both the Rapel Valley and the Curico Valley where the rich alluvial soils combine with a Mediterranean climate to produce wines with a characteristic freshness. This plummy, approachable Merlot represents great value for money.
A dark ruby in colour. Characteristic Merlot scents of red plum, blueberry and black fruit. Medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a juicy acidity and faint peppery notes. The finish is lingering revealing further black fruit flavours. Great with rosemary braised lamb shanks, Thai spiced barbecue shrimp or pear, roquefort and walnut salad.
