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.

Cabernet / Carmenère 2008 - Montes: Cabernet / Carmenère 2008 - Rotwein von MontesAufgrund der 6 monatigen Reife in amerikanischen Eichenfässern und der geringen Filtrierung, zeigt sich der Montes Cabernet / Carmenère in einer schönen, intensiv roten Farbe. Sein Aromenspektrum umfasst Schokolade, Kaffee und einem Anflug von Vanille. Sein Finale ist weich und lange anhaltend. Hier finden Sie ein hervorragendes Preis - Genussverhältnis! Er ist ein optimaler Begleiter zu allen würzig-aromatischen Fleischgerichten, besonders zu Wild und gegrilltem roten Fleisch oder geräucherten Wurstwaren und Wildgeflügel.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorten: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% CarmenèreAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 5,0 g/lRestsüße: 2,75 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate) Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley
