Santa Luz Alba Merlot 2012
Exudes ripe berry and plum aromas and flavors, supported by the soft, well-rounded tannins of this classic grape variety. It makes a fine aperitif and a delicious accompaniment to garlic-roasted lamb, beef casseroles, or a cheese-topped vegetable gratin.
Produced and bottled by Vina Luis Felipe Edwards (VLFE)—The estate was established in 1936 by Luis Felipe Edwards Sr. who purchased the Fundo San Jose de Puquillay estate. This Colchagua-Valley-based operation sits nestled in a secluded horseshoe-shaped valley, separated from the majestic snow-capped Andes by the smaller San Fernando ridge. Since then, the Edwards family has been passionately devoted to improving the winery and the vineyards, producing top-quality wines from carefully tended vines of up to 70 years old, for which they have accrued an extensive medal tally.
