The grapes for Purple Angel come from Montes’ own vineyards in Apalta and Marchigüe, arguably two of the finest sites in the Colchagua Valley. In Apalta, vines are planted on 45° slopes, providing good exposure to achieve ripeness. Cool ocean breezes and low night-time temperatures moderate this warm area, permitting slow development and retention of varietal aromas and acidity. Marchigüe is slightly cooler because of its close proximity to the ocean. Conditions are dry, reducing the threat of fungal disease and resulting in consistently healthy harvests.All grapes were hand harvested. Fruit underwent cold soaking for 10 days to extract aroma and colour, before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks for eight days. Following this, the wine spent 15-20 days on its skins to enhance structure and colour. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels (80% new and 20% one-year-old) for 18 months. 8% Petit Verdot was added to the final blend which adds spice, structure, colour and acidity.

Tasting Note

Purple Angel displays the rich flavours typical of Carmenère. Deep carmine red in colour, this wine has aromas of blackberries and figs, combined with notes of nutmeg, dark chocolate and pastry. On the palate, it is well-structured with rich tannins, a balanced acidity and a long, lingering finish.
