Acrux is a dark color red blend wine produced in Chile by the Viña Sutil winery. The nose of the vintage 2014 of Acrux gradually opens to perfumes of ripe berries. The mouth is mouthful and smooth, with just a little bit of tannins as a tertiary impression. The fruity aromas (blackcurrant) confirm the pleasant impression of the nose with some added complexity provided by chocolate, spicy and vegetable notes. This wine has a medium-long finish.
