Weingut Montes-Alpha Syrah. Weingut Montes Neue Welt Chile Shiraz Weingut Montes Grosse 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Of intense ruby red color, it has enchanting floral aromas accompanied by tobacco and leathery notes. On the mouth, it’s powerful and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins and a very long and elegant finish. The wine has been aged in French oak for one year and had only one soft filtering. Aurelio has added 7% of Cabernet Sauvignon to improve the structure of the wine and 3% of Viognier to the final blend to enhance the wine’s nose and soften its tannins, producing a superb Syrah.

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.

Light purple. Aroma of black berries. Velvet-like palate with a medium mouthfeel. Hints of herb and slight spice that leads into the finish.

Rubinroter Wein. Beeriges Bouquet mit schöner Würze, Zimt und intensivem Duft. Im Gaumen konzentriert und körperreich mit weichen und reifen Tanninen. Langer und eleganter Abgang.

Ripe, polished and forward, with toasty vanilla and sweet spice leading the way for creamy-textured plum and blackberry fruit. Drink now.
