The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful red wine cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon (90%) and Merlot (10%).
In the glass this Chilean red wine delights with a strong ruby red color. The elegant, complex and intense bouquet unfolds strong aromas of violets and red fruits - especially heart cherries - as well as notes of blackberry, chocolate and black pepper with a hint of cigar box. Vanilla, caramel and coffee notes of the oak maturity complete the aromas of the nose. On the palate, this fine and excellent red wine from Chile convinces with a wonderful balance, a great structure, a medium body and firm and round tannins. This red wine closes with a long and persistent reverberation.
Vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon Montes Alpha Magnum
Both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot grapes are harvested by hand at optimum ripeness. After complete destemming, the grapes are separated from each other and fermented. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by an extended mashing life. This gives this red wine its strong aromas, intense color and wonderful tannins. The ageing for this red wine takes place for 12 months in French oak barriques. Only when bottling is the Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon harmoniously rounded off with the 10% Merlot content.
