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.The grapes were cold soaked at 10°C for five days to extract aroma and colour. Following this, they underwent fermentation in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks for 12 days and were then kept on the skins to impart structure and colour. 55% of the final blend was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

Tasting Note

This wine is deep ruby red in colour with violet hues. On the nose, it has intense aromas of blackberries and plums with notes of mint, mocha and sweet spice. The French oak lends some toasty notes that complement the aromatic profile. It is a full-bodied wine with smooth, velvety tannins and a long, vibrant finish.
