Cousiño-Macul's Jardin de Macul Merlot hails from Chile's oldest wine producing estate in Maipo Valley. Decidedly Chilean, the wine brilliantly preserves French character whilst revealing South American flair - a captivating blend of two worlds.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

Your taste journey with the Jardin de Macul Merlot begins with an inviting nose of ripe red fruits, cherries, and plums with an earthy touch and hints of spices and herbs. On the palate, it is incredibly smooth and velvety, harboring a medium body that gracefully carries forward the luscious and succulent flavors of ripe berries, sweet cherries, and plums. The finish discloses a subtle touch of vanilla - delicate and creamy - adding a layer of allure to this complex and elegant wine. Every sip is like a taste voyage to the Andes-facing Macul Valley vineyards, with the wine beautifully expressing its authentic Chilean roots and heritage.

Pairings & Suggestions

Versatility is one of the signature traits of the Jardin de Macul Merlot. Its rich and well-balanced nature makes it an ideal partner to a variety of palates. Consider pairing it with grilled meats such as lamb and beef to enhance its juicy red fruit flavors. It also embraces the earthiness of roasted vegetables like root veggies or grilled Portobello mushrooms. You can also enjoy a silky glide of cheese dates with this Merlot - Aged Cheddar or Gouda would make a delicious choice. Heavier courses like a Mushroom Risotto or a robust Beef Stew also marry well. And if you’re in the mood for something sweet, its hints of vanilla sync well with dark chocolate desserts like flourless chocolate cake or delicate truffles.

Preserving Heritage Through Timeless Winemaking

Cousiño-Macul, founded in 1856, stands today resiliently rooted in history as Chile’s oldest family-run winery. Its legacy was established when the Cousiño family, originally from Spain, embraced the bountiful soils of the Maipo Valley, planting the seeds for a vine sanctuary that has thrived across generations. The Jardin de Macul Merlot, in particular, is a product from the oldest Merlot vineyard in the Macul estate, planted in 1981. Cousiño-Macul proactively adapts history to modern times, using traditional vinification techniques yet adopting sustainable vineyard practices – a testament to their unwavering commitment to preserving heritage while securing the future.

Storage Instructions

Store your Cousiño-Macul Jardin de Macul Merlot at a stable temperature of 12-16°C (54-61°F), away from direct sunlight and vibrations. Maintain the humidity at around 60-70% to prevent the cork from drying out. Remember, fluctuations can lead to premature aging, so consistent temperature is key. Ideally, the wine should be stored sideways to keep the cork moist.
