    Winemaker Notes

    Beautifully deep garnet in colour, Viña Tarapacá Reserva Merlot opens with vibrant aromas of ripe berries spice and smoke. The characteristic fruitfulness of Merlot is quite evident, with classic flavours of plum and sweet blackberry given depth and richness by the subtie overlay of oak, the prolonged contact with the skins and seeds after fermentation gives the wine a substantive tannic structure and full body, lengthening on the palate into a complex, flavourful finish.

    Tarapaca, Chile
    Viña Tarapacá ex Zavala was born during the last century, in 1874, known then as "Viña de Rojas", in honour of its founder, Don Francisco de Rojas y Salamanca, a well-know business man of the period. Don Francisco imported selected European wine stock varieties directly from France.

    Later, under the ownership of Antonio Zavala, the name "Viña Zavala" emerged. When Antonio Zavala divorced his wife, she received the vineyard but did not change its name. Finally the vineyard adopted his current name "Viña Tarapacá Ex-Zavala" in recognition of the former President of the Republic, Don Arturo Alessandri, know as the "Lion of Tarapacá" who solved a legal problems between Mr. Zavala and his wife.

    From the start of 1992, when the Chilean group, Fósforos took control over the wine-producing operations of the company, an ambitious export program was launched.
