Wine Tasting Notes
Montes "Alpha" Chardonnay D.O. Casablanca Valley Varietal: Chardonnay Region: Casablanca Valley, Chile
Delicious, full-bodied, complex and creamy in the mid-palate, our Alpha Chardonnay is one of the few Chilean whites wines that will improve with age. The 1998 vintage was selected as ‘World Champion Chardonnay’ by Slow Food of Italy, after simultaneous tastings in 26 cities around the world, covered live by BBC-TV in London. Grapes are sourced from the renowned white wine area, Casablanca Valley. Fermented and aged in French oak barrels for one year; 40% of the wine undergoes secondary ‘malolactic fermentation’ to enhance buttery flavors. A monthly stirring of the wine or batonage enhances flavor and aroma complexity.
Montes "Alpha" Malbec Colchagua Valley Varietal: Malbec Region: Colchagua Valley, Chile
This wine is a blend of 45% Malbec from Marchigüe Estate and 45% Malbec from Apalta Estate. The remaining is a 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Apalta. Montes Alpha Malbec is a red-colored intense, almost black-looking wine. To the nose it expels notes of red fruit in unison with spices and black pepper. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months developing superior complexity both in aroma and on the palate. This is a soft, elegant wine of silky tannins with a long, delightful finish.
