Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère has a beautiful deep ruby red color. The scents are those of black fruit, butterscotch and spices. The wood aging gives the wine a vanilla scent and adds to the complexity. The wine has a lot of body but is at the same time friendly in character. The finish is firm with tannin with a subtle sweetness from the Carmènére grape.
The vineyards are located on the slopes of Apalta valley in Colchagua on the Tinguiririca river. The soil is poor with limited organic matter. The combination of cooling wind from the ocean and Andes and the latitude ensures perfect ripening of the grapes.
The wine is traditionally made. Lagering takes place for 6 months in American oak barrels, after which the wine is minimally filtered so that it remains very pure.
Serve with rich meat dishes and game dishes. Also delicious with matured and rich cheeses. Decant the wine beforehand so that the wine has more aromas. The wine is now drinking well, but can be drunk up to 5 years after the harvest year.
The Limited Selection series always gives a good price/quality ratio.
Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère is a delicious Chilean red wine of Viña Montes from Chile. This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere grapes.
Montes' story seems like a dream but has become more and more reality. In 1987, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both with extensive expertise in the world of wine, set out to realize their dream of producing top quality wines far superior to those produced in Chile up to that point. In 1988 two more partners joined, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, each of whom made their special and complementary contribution, thus giving birth to Viña Montes.
Montes is one of the absolute top producers in Chile and Aurelio Montes was recently voted Chile's most influential winemaker. Montes has five vineyards. Three of them are in Curico Valley and two in Colchagua Valley. In 2004, a completely new winery was built in Alpalta, which was set up according to the Chinese Fengh Shui philosophy. Aurelio Jr. has now also earned his spurs as a winemaker and together with his father he forms a close and successful team.
