A bottle of Cabernet Merlot is best-paired with slow-cooked food like duck and pork. It is also complements roasted vegetables, lightly-spiced meats as well as tomato-based dishes.
Plaga wines are made under the same parameters of viniﬁcation as prestigious vineyards in Australia, Chile and California. The fermentation process occurs under low temperatures using stainless steel tanks, pipes and pumps in order to preserve and extract the highest quality juice from imported grapes. In the stabilization, clariﬁcation and ﬁltration stages we have used only ﬁrst quality enological products from overseas, assuring the quality of our product. The bottling process has been made in a special Italian bottling line to ensure a perfect seal and the correct evolution of the wine in bottle. Time, dedication and the most modern technology are an essential part of the viniﬁcation of each bottle of Plaga Wine.
Color: Cherry-red color. Aroma: There is a big complexity. We can smell all the oak influences with notable spices aromas like pepper and milk chocolate flavors, but also sweet expressions like cinnamon and caramel; but at the same time we can find all the berries from Merlot and herbal species characteristic from Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. Palate: A natural slight sweetness empowers the big structure in mouth. All the fruits and species are present in the sip and a quite long after taste.
