One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

87 Points - Wine AdvocateDeep ruby red color with layers of caramel, cinnamon, and hints of mint, this Montes Classic Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a prevalence of fruit over oak. Fruity sophistication expressing the terroir of the Colchagua valley, this wine has solid and friendly, ripe tannins. An outstanding wine for bottle aging, this Cabernet Sauvignon has oak that is not predominant, but well balanced in order to retain the fruit character of the bottle.

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2008 - Montes: Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2008 - Rotwein von MontesDer Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2008 ist das Resultat einer Traumhochzeit vom Kraftprotz Cabernet mit dem sanften, fruchtigen Merlot. Im Glas leuchtet er in einem dichten Rubinrot mit dunklen Reflexen und duftet intensiv nach Früchten wie Cassis und Walderdbeere, zusammen mit schwarzen Kirschen, Schokolade und etwas Karamell. Am Gaumen kann man vordergründig dunkle Beeren spüren, was zart von einer Eichennote unterstrichen wird, die an Gewürze wie Zimt erinnert. Dieser komplexe Wein zeigt auch Anklänge an Minze, Karamell und karamellisierte dunkle Beeren. Die Aromen werden unterstützt von soliden und reifen Tanninen, sein Finale ist einnehmend und kräftig und die belebende Säure zeigt sich harmonisch eingebunden. Probieren Sie ihn zu Kurzgebratenem roten Fleisch, Gerichten mit dunklen Bratensaucen und Frischlingsbraten.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorten: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 5,0 g/lRestsüße: 2,0 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFaßreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley
