Montes Purple Angel has a deep purple red color. Aromas of black fruit, chocolate, cigar boxes and spiciness. The wine has a lot of finesse and elegance in the taste. Beautiful full wine with ripe tannins and a solid structure. Well balanced long finish.
The vineyards are located on the slopes of Apalta in Colchagua (Central Valley) on the Tinguiririca River, enjoying a wonderful micro-climate. The soil is poor with limited organic matter.
Grape variety(s): 92% Carmenère (partly from La Finca de Apalta Estate and partly from the Archangel Estate), 8% Petit Verdot, both are located in the Colchagua Valley. The grapes are harvested manually and traditionally processed into a classic top wine. Aging for 18 months in French oak barrels. This wine is not filtered to show its pure character. The Carménère grape, which originally comes from Bordeaux, is doing much better in Chile. This great wine is a good example of a top Chilean Carménère.
A special wine for a special moment. A nice dinner with a richly filled table: with nice red meat or at the end of the dinner with cheeses or a piece of dark chocolate. If you can resist the wine yourself, this Carmenère is also a perfect gift. A wine to impress.
Montes Purple Angel is a delicious Chilean red wine of Viña Montes from Chile. This wine is made from 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.
