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

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were harvested from the famous Leyda valley. After harvesting, the grapes were cold macerated at 10° C (50°F) for 7 days and then fermented. 60% of the wine was aged in French oak for 12 months. The other 40% was not oak aged. 20% of the oak used was new oak. After a very light filtration the wine was bottled. The resulting wine is a beautiful and delicate ruby red color. It has an intense and elegant nose with a predominance of strawberries and flowery hints that all together makes this Pinot Noir a very lively, harmonious and generous wine. On 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 colour very expressive of Pinot Noir.
