Hoya de Cadenas Merlot


Merlot from Hoya de Cadenas Estate

GENERAL INFORMATION
Type of wine: Red Varietal
Appellation of Origin: Utiel – Requena
Grape varieties: 100% Merlot
Alcohol content: 13%

The Merlot variety, with its naturally lower tannin and acidity levels is considered as the smoothest noble grape variety. The Hoya de Cadenas estate with its unique micro climatic conditions combined with clay and limestone soils caters for the perfect location to produce evenly ripe and aromatic Merlot grapes. The cool night time temperatures ensure a prolonged ripening season, providing a well structured development of tannins and polyphenols.

Production
Vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 25ºC for two weeks. The maceration of the skins is subject to a meticulous control to extract the best expression of the varietal. It is aged for 4 months in French oak barrels. The barrels used are medium toasted, which allows very smooth and elegant wines to be produced.

Gastronomy

Recommended with: Salads, white meat and small game.

Tasting Notes

This elegant Merlot has an attractive ruby red colour with violet iridescences. The nose is aromatic and intense with a sweet blueberry and dark plum bouquet. On the palate it is smooth and well balanced with the mid pallet showing fruitcake and vanilla aromas. This is a harmonious, singular wine providing an elegant, lingering aftertaste.
