Montes Merlot Colchagua Valley Alpha 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this Merlot wine are from Colchagua valley, some of them coming from the Marchigue estate. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine goes through a oak ageing of six months in new and used American oak barrels. This is a young Merlot with some oak ageing. This is elegant, refined with a marked fruitiness almost irresistible to Merlot lovers and to those who sample it for the first time. It is strong, spicy black pepper, full of harmony and soft to the palate. 15% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with this Merlot to better marry with the oak, and give structure and finesse that will also permit long term ageing.

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.

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