    Montes Folly 2017 - Montes

    The Montes Folly is a pure Syrah and owes its name to the highest and steepest slopes in the Valle de Colchagua. Because with a gradient of over 45 degrees it is just crazy (= folly) to plant vines there. But the confidence in Aurelio Montes was greater and so the employees implemented this bizarre and yet grandiose idea.

    The result is this Chilean red wine with a rich, dark, ruby red to almost black colour. The bouquet exudes intense aromas of ripe blueberries with hints of lavender. The aromas of the nose are underlined by notes of toast, white pepper and some leather.

    The palate is sensual, juicy and seductive. Multilayered notes of juicy plums, ripe raspberries and cassis liqueur unfold. The perfectly structured tannins are harmoniously integrated into the firm and muscular body. The finish convinces with a grandiose length and unforgettable balance.

    Vinification of the Montes Folly

    The Syrah grapes are harvested selectively by hand in the cool hours of the night. In the cellar, the grapes are further selected so that only the best and healthiest grapes are fermented. First the grapes are lightly ground and then crushed. The preliminary flow is drained (approx. 20%) and pumped back over the mash - this way a maximum of colourings, aromas and tannins can be extracted from the berry skins.

    At the beginning of the fermentation the temperature is up to 30°C and then sinks to 25°C. Only natural yeasts from the vineyards are used for fermentation.

    The ageing of this dry red wine takes place for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Finally, this red wine is bottled unfiltered.

    Food recommendation for the Folly from Montes

    This dry red wine from Chile goes very well with T-bone steak, game dishes (venison leg, wild boar ragout, wild poultry) with mushrooms, spicy casseroles and spicy beef braised roast or medium-ripe cheeses.
