Montgras Carménère Colchagua Valley Reserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

In der Nase entfalten sich sortentypische Aromen von Kräutern, Gewürzen und vegetabilen Noten, die mit einer reifen Frucht- und dezenter Ausbauaromatik unterlegt sind. Das intensive Bouquet bietet eine vielschichtige Aromapalette und lässt viel Gutes erwarten. Der Sinneseindruck im Gaumen ist von samtigen, weichen und reifen Gerbstoffen geprägt. Die gut eingebundene Fruchtsäure harmoniert mit dem Schmelz und der leckeren Textur dieses zugänglichen, gehaltvollen Rotweins, der aus der Rebsorte Carmenère gekeltert wurde, die aus Bordeaux stammend in Chile eine neue Heimat gefunden hat. Das Fazit im Abgang: ein Wein, der viel Genussfreude vermittelt.

Premium Wines Crafted With a Personal Touch The beautifully neat vineyards of MontGras, in the locality of Palmilla, Colchagua, VI Region of Chile, represent the concrete testimony of the development and the desire to do things right that have always characterized the Gras brothers, Hernán and Eduardo, along with partner Cristián Hartwig. Inspired by Hernán Gras, who has a brilliant winemaking trajectory in Canada, along with the entrepreneurial vision of his brother Eduardo and Hartwig's pragmatic businesses view, who comes from a winemaking family and who in addition has strong bonds with Colchagua, joined together to give to life to Viña MontGras in 1993, the first project of MontGras Properties. MontGras, that has always had state-of-the-art technology in all its processes, set out from its conception to be the winery with the best premium wine from Chile. It is no accident then, the great amount of international prizes that have recognized the professional work, the constant quality and the innovation of MontGras wines. In this, like corporative culture, people have been key. As Hernán Gras, Chairman of the Board says, "our philosophy has to do with producing quality Chilean wines at exceptional value, which reflect the specific terroir from where the grape come from. Although we count on the equipment and the technology, it is definitively our people that make the difference. To create a wine is a true art in which all the senses are used." Read less

Light bodied and not very viscous for a Carmenere. Still a good bottle of wine that isn't overly Chilean. Good gateway wine for American wine drinkers.

Inky ruby. Fresh blackberry, raspberry, incense and rose on the slightly reduced nose. Firm and refreshingly brisk, offering fresh red and dark berry flavors and a kick of peppery spice. Very young but shows good, energetic fruitiness. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and good persistence.

The fruit of a mission to produce estate-grown wines of exceptional quality and originality, the MontGras estate today encompasses over 200 hectares planted to vine in the heart of Chile’s wine-producing region. Since the first harvest in the early 1990s, MontGras wines have earned over 200 medals and awards worldwide, garnering international critical acclaim. Santiago Margozzini serves as head winemaker. Production Area Chile’s Colchagua Valley, located between the Coastal Range and the Andes. Grape Varieties 100% Carmenère Vinification Grapes are hand-harvested in early May.

/ From the Colchagua Valley and consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs, the only balanced wine of the bunch. With a cherry-blackberry nose, this low acid, dry wine delivers a mouthful of fresh black cherries with a touch of chocolate. We agreed that only one wine stood out as exceptional: MontGras Reserva 2005.

/ If you crave lean, elegant reds, this smooth alternative to Merlot does the trick. You'll pick up hints of blueberry, sweet spice and tobacco.

/ Gamy aromas of blackberry, asphalt and dust. Lithe, lively flavors of black fruit and vanilla. Minerals freshen the finish.
