    Montes Alpha

    About Montes Alpha

    Conceived as an ambitious winemaking project in 1987 by the visionary Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both of whom had decades of experience in the vinous world, Montes was born of a singular belief that Chile’s terroir have been producing far better wines than it currently was. This stretched far beyond the ambition to craft passable wines to grace tables around the globe, but rather to give life to one of the world’s truly great fine wines.

     

    Joined in their noble quest one year later by Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, the success of Montes has, in many ways, meant the success of Chile (as a serious winemaking country). One of the real vanguards of the wave of exceptional Chilean fine wines we are currently blessed with, Montes deserves to be considered one of the South American country’s First Growth equivalents.

     

    Viniculture

    Purple Angel, is a special cuvée even by the standards of this very special estate. One of the most revered expressions of Carmenère in the country, the vineyard from which it is sourced is found deep in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, Chile’s foremost winegrowing region. A tremendously balanced terroir thanks to the exposure to fearsome South American heat tempered by breezes from the Pacific, conditions for Carmenère could hardly be finer.

    Montes Outer Limits Zapallar Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2019 (6x75cl)

    Jancis Robinson (18)

    100% Sauvignon Blanc. The only vineyard that exists in DO Zapallar and located just 7 km from the coast. Clayey enriched soils and a dry steppe climate. Hand-harvested bunches are destemmed, cold-soaked for 12–24 hours, the must is settled for 24 h, then inoculated with Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Torulaspora yeasts. Fermentation at low temperature. Aged on its lees for 6–8 months. How much pleasure! A wine with a lot of aroma, with endless layers of aromatic complexity. It has a great mouth-coating texture triggering a herbal memory. The palate is full, rich, pleasant, although with sharp acidity above the rich texture. It is very well delineated, fresh, rich, deep and concentrated. A complete Sauvignon Blanc that will make you salivate. Delicious!

    Montes Purple Angel 2019 (6x75cl)

    Found deep in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, Chile’s foremost winegrowing region, the vines from which Purple Angel are sourced lay in Alpata. A tremendously balanced terroir thanks to the exposure to fearsome South American heat tempered by breezes from the Pacific, conditions for Carmenère could hardly be finer.

     

    Presumed extinct from its home in Bordeaux, this gorgeous varietal was thought lost to the ravages of time and phylloxera for many years. Emerging from the, unexpected, mountains of Chile, Carmenère has found itself a new spiritual home in this stunning country. A celebration of that which the fine wine world came so dangerously close to losing, Purple Angel has done more for the advancement of its dominant grape than perhaps any other single wine.

     

    The foremost cuvée of its type in the New World, we simply love to offer and wholeheartedly recommend wines of such transcendent quality and historical significance. Comprised of 92% Carmenère with 8% Petit Verdot, the cuvée is aged for 18 months in new French oak. It is a testament to the power and purity of the varietal that the wood is a mere seasoning and never dominates the wine. Exceptionally elegant aromas glide forth from Purple Angel 2018, displaying gorgeously ripe blackberries, blueberries and dried flowers. The Carmenère simply sings on the palate, with characteristically rich notes of coffee and chocolate alongside velvety spices and dark fruits. Thrillingly composed tannins freshen the wine impeccably and give exquisite structure.
