With an impressive carmine-red colour, the wine shows aromas principally of ripe fruit, such as red and black plum, blackberry, and strawberry. There are also interesting sweet spice and tobacco notes, and a subtle hint of fresh mint. The French oak barrel ageing adds elegance and balance, as well as notes of dulce de leche, vanilla, and a touch of cedar. The palate is balanced and smooth, with vibrant acidity that promises a long life in bottle. Delicious with duck breast or even with a red-pesto pasta.

    Description

    Montes is one of the most progressive and experimental wineries in all of Chile. Started by friends Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, the vision was to create wines that will be recognised the world over. The Montes team have been working sustainably in their vineyards for many years and continue to prove the benefit of respecting the soil and vineyard surrounds. Aurelio really believes in nurturing the wines and plays out continuous classical music in the barrel hall!
