Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine come from a warm-climate zone of the Curico Valley. Hand-picked in mid-April, the grapes are crushed, and undergo 5 days of cold maceration at (10° C) in stainless steel tanks for 5 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures (27° C) for 8 days, with gentle, aerated pump overs. The wine is then aged in contact with French and American oak for 6 months.


Interesting Fact
The Terra Pura illustration on the label seeks to convey the importance of maintaining the ecosystem in which humans, plants and animals coexist. The trumpets/speakers at the apex of the illustration represent the importance of listening to what nature has to tell us.


Serving Hints
Terra Pura Merlot is perfect as an aperitif, and also with red meats, and red sauce pasta dishes.
