    Montes Alpha Merlot 2016 - Montes

    The Montes Alpha Merlot is a wonderful blend of Merlot (90%) and Carménère (10%).

    A deep, concentrated cherry red colour shines in the glass. In the nose, aromas of ripe red and black berries (especially strawberries) merge with juicy cherries. Fine floral notes harmonise perfectly with the spicy notes of oak wood maturity such as coffee, tobacco and vanilla. On the palate this Chilean red wine is juicy and full-bodied with an aromatic plum fruit and notes of dark baked cocoa. Velvety mature tannins give this red wine a soft texture and a long, elegant and silky finish.

    Vinification of Montes Alpha Merlot

    The grapes thrive in the vineyards of the highly acclaimed Finca de Apalta, located southwest of the capital Santiago de Chile in the Apalta Valley. The Apalta Valley has developed into one of the best - if not the best - regions for Chilean red wine.

    After careful hand-picking of all grapes at optimal ripeness, they are brought to the wine cellar for complete destemming and maceration. After alcoholic fermentation this wine is still on the mash to concentrate the strong aromas, the wonderful colour and the silky tannins from the berry skins. The ageing takes place for 12 months in French oak barriques.

    Food recommendation for the Merlot Montes Alpha

    We recommend this dry red wine from Chile with pasta with wild mushrooms, corn poulard, roast turkey from the oven with berry compote or chestnuts, wild poultry, shoulder of lamb or braised beef with herbs or oriental dishes.
