About the wine

When drinking this Montes Alpha Carmenère, you are met immediately with a nose of ripe red and black fruits, accompanied by jam and some savoury notes. Toasted oak is met with sweet spices and violet. The wine then delivers smooth and gentle tannins on the palate with just a touch of vanilla and coffee. In summary, this is a brilliant example of a Chilean Carmenère; it is well structured and complex. Without a doubt, this is one of our favourite wines.

56% of the Carmenère is aged for 12 months in first-use French oak barrels. The wine is then filtered through cartridge filters prior to bottling.

About the winemaker

Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand started Montes in 1987. They formed Montes with the intention of producing some of the best wines in Chile. Their meticulous approach to wine making really broke the mould. They control all aspects of the process and pick their grapes by hand. As a result, their Villa Montes Cabernet Sauvignon raised the bar for wine making in Chile. A number of different brands make up the Montes portfolio. For instance, the Alpha wines are made from premium sites, which guarantees complexity.
