Characteristics of Viñas del Vero Merlot

Viñas del Vero Merlot is an aged red wine made by the Viñas del Vero winery in the D.O. Somontano (Aragón) with the Merlot noble variety.

The Viñas del Vero winery lies in the Aragón town of Barbastro (Huesca). Owned by González-Byass, one of the world’s biggest wine groups, they fully control production volume and maintain the same high quality.

Viñas del Vero Merlot comes from a plot with vines planted between 1988 and 1989. These are old vines growing on sandy loam soils at an altitude of 500 metres. The team uses traditional agriculture and the harvest is carried out at dawn to keep the grapes in the best possible condition.

In the winery, the Viñas del Vero Merlot grapes are destemmed and cooled to a temperature of 8ºC for maceration. After the must has fermented, the wine ages in French oak barrels for 10 months.

Viñas del Vero Merlot is a red wine that showcases how well the Bordeaux Merlot variety has adapted to the D.O. Somontano.

Tasting notes Viñas del Vero Merlot

Viñas del Vero Merlot 2017 is a concentrated red wine with aromas of ripe red fruit, cocoa notes and subtle toasted touches. On the palate it is tasty, deep and deliciously persistent.
Sight

Bright cherry colour with burgundy trim. Abundant tears.

Nose Intense and complex scents, with a wide range of aromas. Red fruit, balsamic, soft toasted notes provided by the wood of good quality, cocoa, aromas of underbrush and minerals. All of them appear on a very spicy background in which the notes of vanilla stand out. Taste Broad and tasty Somontano wine, with a velvety, warm and fleshy mid palate. Good structure and nice tannins. Lingering finish. Very nice wine.
Sight

Intense cherry colour with maroon reflections. Clean and bright wine with slow-falling tears.

Nose The red fruit becomes very expressive from the very beginning. It is released along with creamy spicy notes, among which the notes of vanilla and cocoa stand out. When it opens up, some the soft notes of wood, eucalyptus and light vegetable and mineral touches are also noticed. Taste Intense, broad and warm attack and a tasty, fresh and unctuous mid palate. The wooden aromas become more expressive in the mouth. Its sweet tannins and its good acidity provide the wine with freshness. Lingering finish that leaves good and elegant toasted aromas.

Nose Its aroma is very intense and is noted for its complexity with notes of ripe fruit and balsamic notes.
Taste With a fine tannin in the mouth is round, balanced and elegant, fleshy, with a remarkably long and tasty as they appear fine toast notes. It is a wine to take now and that was just round the bottle.
