Rubinrot. Starke Aromen von roten Beeren, schwarzen Kirschen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Im Gaumen ein wohlschmeckender körperreicher Wein mit Geschmacksnoten von Vanille und Toast, sehr elegant mit einem langanhaltenden Abgang.

Alpha Merlot 2007 - Montes: Alpha Merlot 2007 - Rotwein von MontesDer sehr elegante Montes Alpha Merlot hat viel zu sagen und das hinterlässt einen bleibenden Eindruck. Im Glas sehen wir ihn in einem sehr intensiven Rubinrot und spüren überwältigende Fruchtaromen, wie z.B. nach überreifen, schwarze Kirschen. Das komplexe Aromenspektrum wird vervollständigt durch Eindrücke von schwarzem Pfeffer, Tabak und Vollmilchschokolade. Er überzeugt mit einem kräftigen Körper und guter Balance, weichen, reifen Tanninen und sehr gut integrierten Holzaromen samt feiner Säurestruktur und langem Nachhall. Neben den schwarzen Kirschen schmecken wir Pflaumenkompott, schwarzen Pfeffer, Vollmilchschokolade und Vanille heraus. Dieser Wein passt zu allen würzig-aromatischen Fleischgerichten, wie Wild, empfiehlt sich aber auch zu kräftigen Hauptgängen der Euro- Asiatischen Küche.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorte: 100% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Colchagua Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

All the grapes for this Merlot come from the "la Finca de Apalta” Estate in the Apalta Valley, reputed to be the best for red wines in Chile. The wine spends 12 months in French new and used oak. There is only very light filtering in order to keep all the aromas and colour. It is a handsome ruby red colour with high intensity. There is outstanding and concentrated fruit, with a noseful of black cherry, hints of black pepper, notes of tobacco and sweet chocolate. 15% of Carmenere is added into the blend as it adds of spiciness to the wine. Overall this is a full-bodied and well balanced wine, round and velvety in mid-palate, with soft and ripe tannins. Well integrated oak with added touch of vanilla, followed by a long and smooth finish. Very, very elegant.
