Get to know: Montes Alpha, Colchagua Carmenere

Tasting Note

Deep ruby red in colour, this wine has intense aromas of chocolate, black and red fruits with spicy notes of black pepper. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with smooth and rounded tannins and a long finish.

Try this with grilled lamb chops.

Producer Info

A blend of 90% Carmenere , 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Montes Alpha started producing in 1987, and quickly learned that they needed balanced yields and to harvest when the grapes were ripe. They adapted these practices to all their vineyards and the results were startling.

The Carmenère grapes come from Montes' own vineyards in Apalta and Marchigüe, arguably two of the finest sites in the Colchagua Valley. The sites are irrigated via a 'Sustainable Dry Farmed' system which allows for precise and minimal irrigating. In Apalta, vines are planted on 45° slopes, providing good exposure to achieve ripeness. Cool ocean breezes and low night-time temperatures help to moderate this warm area, allowing for slow ripening. Marchigüe is slightly cooler because of its closer proximity to the ocean. Conditions are dry, with the region lying in the rain shadow of the Coastal Range, reducing the threat of fungal disease and resulting in consistently healthy harvests.

This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans.

This wine has been produced using a sustainable process.
