Is a delicious Chilean red wine of Viña Montes from Chile. This wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes.
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.
Is bright cherry red with magenta at the rim. The nose is very fruity with sweet notes of strawberries and fresh cherries. Light forest-like aromas intermingle with a floral note. The very well-integrated oak lends elegance and complexity through lightly toasty aromas of hazelnuts and vanilla. The palate is well balance and shows delicious acidity. The nearly imperceptible tannins lead the way to a mildly sweet sensation. With medium volume and good persistence on the palate, this Pinot Noir delivers a vibrant mouthful of fruit and elegance at the same time.
Pure Pinot Noir heaven from the famed Casablanca Valley. This wine has 6 months of ageing in French oak and a very soft filtering. Aurelio is proud of this wine’s strong varietal character and great complexity. A little darker than typical Pinots, it has a deep ruby color. The aroma, however, is classic Pinot Noir, with strong hints of violets and berries. A very satisfying wine with a long, smooth and elegant finish. Decanting a few minutes before serving is recommended.
To serve with meat dishes, veal, lamb and rich hard, old or cheeses.
