Concha y Toro Frontera Merlot 2013 A

Concha y Toro Frontera Merlot 2013 | Vivino 3.1 Emoticon smiley

When Checkers first started selling their Wines of the World  the Frontera probably deserved two smiley emojis but with the collapse of the rand in December 2015 it may not be too long before this excellent (but far from perfect!) wine loses its single smiley emoji.

The appeal of the Frontera is its reliability. For consistency, quality and price South African merlots simply do not compete.
