Fine wine is a gem to behold and Concha Y Toro, the largest producer of wines from Latin America and one of the leading ones in the field, knows this well. True enough, this fine vintage line has accumulated a lot of praise internationally from different wine critics all over the world. And we can all raise our glasses to a lovely toast and a warm hello, as we welcome Chile’s most iconic Cabernet Sauvignon, Don Melchor, upon finally hitting our shores!
Produced from the grapes of Puente Alto vineyard that can be found at the foot of the Andes Mountains and on the oldest terrace of the Maipo River, the Don Melchor 2015 is a wonder all on its own. From the type of soil to the semi-arid, Mediterranean climate, and the composition of the vineyard — everything has come together to produce this exquisite blend. We’re talking 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Fran, and 1% Petit Verdot. Its beauty is further revealed in several layers of flavors and aromas, pretty much convincing us that it really is love at first sip. That’s because the blend was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels that was produced with delicate textures, mineral notes, and a fruity aroma for an overall sensorial experience.
If you’re not the type to enjoy a glass of wine on its own merit, the Don Melchor 2015 can also be enjoyed with a couple of food pairings. To warm your appetite, you can opt to pair it with assorted terrines,pâté, and dried aged goat or cow cheese to complement the wine’s flavors. Then for the heavy mains, the blend is best paired with either red or white meats like poultry, beef or lamb. Not to mention, it also goes well with your favorite pasta dishes.
So go ahead, do yourself a favor, and pour on a glass of Don Melchor 2015’s renowned deep cherry red. Trust us, you’ll find yourself falling madly deeply in love with this beauty in a bottle. Cheers!
