Tasting notes:

Deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, the wine has blackberry and blackcurrant aromas. The palate is medium bodied, with soft tannins, crisp acidity and a lingering finish.

About the wine:

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from the Colchagua Valley renowned for making excellent red wines. In Colchagua, the moderating breezes from the ocean slow ripening allowing the wines to achieve perfect ripeness. Cool nights help to retain acidity giving freshness to the wines.

All grapes were hand harvested. Grapes were crushed before being transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Fermentation lasted for 12 days and the wine was kept in contact with the skins for 10 days to add colour and structure. After malolactic fermentation, 30% of the final blend was transferred to French oak barrels for eight months to add complexity.

About the producer:

Montes was established in1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process.

Montes own 800 hectares of vineyards in Apalta and Marchigue located in Colchaugua Valley as well a single vineyard Zapallar, located in coastal Aconcagua Valley. Their own vineyards cover 75% of their requirements. The other 25% of fruit is produced on vineyards they have planted, cultivated and picked. In other words, they control everything except the ownership of the land. In addition to this control over the vineyard, they also sell in bulk what is not good enough to go into the bottles that carry their label. The results are there for you to taste.

Food match:

Delicious with roasted red meats, steaks  or grilled meat. This would also work well with barbequed meats.
