Montes Alpha Syrah Colchagua Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense purplish-red in color. Abundant blue and red berries on the nose with a predominance of blackberries, blueberries, and cherries as well as a characteristic note of dry-cured Serrano ham along with French oak, which also lends aromas of vanilla and a touch of chocolate. Vibrant and round on the palate with very soft, well-balanced tannins that complement this impeccable Syrah from Colchagua. This wine pairs well with red meats, stir-fried beef, pork chops, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops. Blend: 90% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Viognier

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.
