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.

"Great density and structure with deep ruby red colour. Defined presence of mature dark fruits (berrie´s marmelade) and cassis with perfectly integrated vanilla notes (coming from the best selection of French new oak barrels). The wine is mouth filling

Folly Syrah 2006 - Montes: Folly Syrah 2006 - Rotwein von MontesDie Trauben für diesen Montes Folly Syrah wachsen an einem enorm steilen Hang, es ist schon einigermaßen verrückt, dort Wein anzubauen. Daher heißt dieser Syrah auch "Folly" also Torheit. Im Glas zeigt er ein sattes, tintendunkles, fast schwarzes Rubinrot und duftet sehr elegant nach reifen schwarzen Beeren (Blaubeeren), getoasteter Eiche, Pfeffer, Weihrauch, Lavendel und leicht animalischen Noten (Leder, Wild). Am Gaumen gibt er sich sinnlich und verführerisch, mit vielschichtigen Aromen von Pflaumen, Himbeeren, Cassislikör, feinen Röstnoten (Kaffee, Tabak) und Vanille, er ist dabei konzentriert, muskulös und fest strukturiert. Das zeigt sich auch beim Finale mit seiner großartigen Länge, der enormen, aber kontrollierten Kraft und der absolut perfekten Balance. Dieser großartige Wein ist leider für den deutschen Markt stark limitiert, so dass wir nur wenige Kisten ordern konnten.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Curicó-Lontué-ValleyRebsorte: 100% SyrahAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 3,5 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 15 - 20 Jahre ab Jahrgang Auszeichnungen des Montes Folly Syrah 2006:94 Punkte The Wine Spectator5 Sterne Decanter Juni 2009 Rotwein > Chile > Curicó-Lontué-Valley
