2016 Merlot, Montes Alpha, Colchagua
90% Merlot , 10% Carmenère. Ripe red fruit and blackcurrant leaf on the nose with a spicy plum fruit on the palate, this soft, juicy Merlot is made in a very approachable, versatile style.
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions. The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1987, broke the mould for premium wines in Chile. Since then, Alpha has developed to become the core range in the Montes portfolio. The grapes and sites are carefully selected in order to ensure varietal integrity and complexity. Viticulture is hands on rather than mechanical or industrial.
