Outstanding winemaking conditions – great value for money
The team at Tutunjian Estate are blessed with ideal conditions for growing a wide range of grape varieties in the heart of the central valley. The soils are rich and the area is serviced by fresh running water from the Andes. Their entire range ‘Pacifico Sur’ range offers great value for money.
The Merlot is a particular stand out, displaying bright primary fruits of plums and spices, soft silky tannins and balanced alcohol. The ‘Pacifico Sur Reserva’ series contains a couple of standout wines, including the Riesling from D.O Valle de Casablanca. A fresh, perfumed nose leads to a palate packed with grapefruit and lime notes, showcasing the potential for typically ‘cool-climate’ grape varieties in this part of the world.
