Vina Montes 

The story of Montes seems like a dream and, truthfully, that\'s how it began, becoming progressively reality. It was in 1987 when our two deluded partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, with extensive experience in the world of wine, wanted to realize their dreams of producing wines of a quality far superior to the one that was being produced in Chile at that time. They added in 1988 the other two original partners, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each making their special and complementary contribution, thus giving birth to Viña Montes, called in the beginning DiscoverWine Ltda. A dream come true, of four great visionaries, who have achieved over time, Montes and Montes Alpha wines will reach more than a hundred countries, be recognized for their extraordinary and permanent quality and, at the same time, attract the attention of the entire world about the wines that Chile can produce. Fame soon came when, with all our effort and passion, we created the first Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine really different from the then in vogue. Concentrated, complex and serious, he had immediate success and showed us that we had chosen the right path, the one we wanted from the beginning, thinking about the attributes that international markets wanted. The 1987 version of this Cabernet Sauvignon was the first really premium wine exported by Chile and opened for our vineyard - and for Chile - the path that others followed promptly. Later, they followed our beloved Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah versions. From the beginning, we thought that Montes Alpha should be synonymous with the great Premium brand of Chile, the largest export in its category, aimed at the demanding tastes of the specialized wine shops, restaurants and hotels: that special and reserved niche that leaves footprint and recognition in the world. Continuing with the obsession of creating better wines, Montes was a pioneer in betting on the Apalta Valley and planting vineyards on mountain slopes, in his persistent search for quality, being also the first to plant Syrah in Colchagua. The result came faster than expected: the first ultra-premium (or super-Chilean or icon) Chilean, Montes Alpha 'M' 1996 (a classic Bordeaux), followed by another that has become a cult wine, Montes Folly 2000 (Syrah 100%, very low production) and, finally, the first Carmenère premium Chilean launched in May 2005, Purple Angel (Carmenère 92%). All quickly turned into successes by the specialized press and by our loyal consumers.

Montes Alpha M

This great Chilean wine is deep red in color. Elegance and potency are clearly perceived on the nose with a clear predominance of ripe red fruits such as cherries, plums, and raspberries along with black currant and licorice in perfect balance with the contribution of vanilla, caramel, and light toasted notes from its 18 months in new French oak barrels.

A beautifully concentrated wine, mouth filling with an intense character, soft tannins and very, very long lasting. The structure of this wine will keep it for over 20 years. Montes Alpha M is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Merlot (5%), and Petit Verdot (5%), which links all the other grapes. The Cabernet Franc enhances the elegance of the first variety, and is in total harmony with the softness of the second and austerity of the third. A rewarding high-end Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.
