THE VIRTUAL WINE TASTING INCLUDES:
• Viñas Jóvenes which translates as “Young vines” is a Crianza wine made from the youngest vineyards in this family estate, about 20 years old. It is a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano (6%). It is a fresh, fruity and complex fine wine, very pleasant and easy to drink. This makes VJ an excellent option for any occasion.
•Miguel Merino Reserva is the winery’s flag ship. It comes from excellent vines over 60 years old. Two years of aging in mixed customized barrels (American oak staves to form the body and French oak for the ends/tops) plus a long aging in the bottle of about 4 years make this an elegant and harmonious reserve where nothing out-stands and yet nothing is missing: Ripe fruit & balanced oakyness in the nose and a full bodied complex mouth.
The pack of 2 bottles is designed for a maximum of 4 to 6 attendees, so if the attendee group is made up of more people we recommend the purchase of an additional Tasting Kit for every 4 /6 extra people.
