    2002


A truly outstanding Merlot from Uruguay that has to be a contender for the greatest South American wine ever made!!!!The density, complexity and sheer class of top Pomerol/St.Emilion Grand Cru ClassÚ, treat yourself to one of the finest reds being made anywhere.

In the vineyard

The unique terroir with chalk and clay soils, combined with dry farmed vineyards enjoying coastal climate, and the abundant sunshine allows Familia Deicas to produce their finest ever Merlot following the strict protocol of "Bordeaux cru garage wines". This involves pruning extremely rigorously and green harvesting at various times to keep only those bunches of grapes with the greatest potential.

In the winery

Hand-harvested, the grapes are then taken to the winery in 12 kilo boxes and are de-stemmed by hand, a task that takes 100 people a full day. Then the individual grapes are inspected one by one and carried on small trays to each one of the 5000 litre foudres in the cellars of the boutique winery. After a natural fermentation, the wines is aged in new French oak barrels for 24 months in the underground cellars where the temperatures and humidity are constant. These wines are then bottled without any additional treatment or filtering.
