Viña Leyda was founded in 1998, in Leyda Valley, Chile. Traditionally, Leyda Valley has been an area of natural pasture lands and basic crops such as wheat and barley. After evaluating the potential conditions of the area, a crucial investment was made which enabled water to be brought from the Maipo River through an eight kilometer pipeline. Leyda have now planted 230 hectares of vineyards.
Honest and fresh style, this is a juicy and red fruit Merlot. It has sweet aromas of plums, cherries, and spices. Dark chocolate and tobacco notes add complexity in the nose. Well structured in the mouth, wide and dense, with ripe tannins, bright acidity and a pleasant finish.
