Montes Alpha Series Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful and delicate ruby red color Intense and elegant nose with predominance of strawberries and flowery hints that all together makes this Pinot Noir a very lively harmonious and generous wine In the palate is clean well balanced with soft rounded tannins and a good level of acidity The wine is lengthy in the mouth showing a well integrated and balanced oak Due to the very intense microbiologic control this wine is very lightly filtered what makes the aromas and color very expressive of Pinot Noir

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.

Alpha Pinot Noir 2008 - Montes: Alpha Pinot Noir 2008 - Rotwein von MontesHarmonisch, lebendig und großzügig, das ist der Charakter des Montes Alpha Pinot Noir. Im Glas zeigt er sich in einem attraktiven Dunkelrot und sein Bouquet verweist deutlich an frühsommerliche, reife Erdbeeren zusammen mit blumigen Akzenten. Am Gaumen gibt er sich ausdauernd, während die fein abgestimmte Säure und der großzügige Tanningehalt sehr gut harmonieren. Dies ist ein sanfter und sensibler Wein, wobei gerade die hintergründigen, warmen Eichentöne dieses Bild verstärken.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorte: 100% Pinot NoirAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 3,5 g/lRestsüße: 2,75 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12 - 16°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley
