Ruby ​​red color in glass. In the bouquet, the typical aromas of black pepper, ripe red berries and chocolate are noticeable, finely highlighted with a hint of vanilla and hints of dark plums.

Fits well with
Preferably with meat dishes, e.g. Wild, beef or lamb from the grill or as a roast (very much with oriental spices!

Production
At harvest time, all grapes are carefully harvested by hand in small reading boxes and brought to the winery. Here, Montes lets them macerate cold for seven days (at 9 ° C) and then starts the approximately ten-day alcoholic fermentation. Regular flooding of the mash removes the first colorings, aromas and gentle tannin from the skins. After fermentation is completed, the wine is aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barrels before being finally bottled unfiltered.

Ground
Predominantly lime soils

Wine note
Production area: Valle de Colchagua. The now legendary Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon came in 1987 as Chile's first real premium wine on the market. A pioneer who not least established the reputation of the Montes Wines as a Chilean winery of the Premier League. And a guidepost for almost all following Chilean wines. For Montes partner Douglas Murray, it was precisely this: '' We were obsessed with the ultimate Chilean wine. We would most like to have been the creators of the first Chilean Grange Hermitage. Montes Alpha was a huge step in that direction.
