Viña La Ronciere Licantén Merlot 2018

The Viña La Ronciere Licantén Merlot is a mellow and complex red wine made from slow-ripening grapes located by the sea in the Licantén D.O.; one of only four new DOs recognised in 2018, for its unique terroir. Viña La Ronciere is the only producer in this sub-region of the Curicó Valley. They grow the grapes for this wine at Idahue Estate, where they combine traditional methods with precision techniques to produce fresh, coastal and terroir-driven red wines. Matured for 10 months in French oak the Licantén Merlot displays an intense concentration of fruit, with aromas of blackberries and spice. The palate is generous and deep, with a perfect acid balance and structure. It has a graceful, lengthy finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
