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 colour. The elegant, complex and intense bouquet unfolds powerful aromas of violets and red fruits - especially heart cherry - as well as notes of blackberry, chocolate and black pepper with a hint of cigar box. Vanilla, caramel and coffee notes of the oak wood 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 as well as firm and round tannins. This red wine closes with a long and persistent finish.
Vinification of Cabernet Sauvignon Montes Alpha
Both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are harvested by hand at optimal ripeness. After complete destemming, the grapes are pickled separately and fermented. The alcoholic fermentation is followed by an extended maceration period. This gives this red wine its strong aromas, intense colour and wonderful tannins. This red wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques. The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is only harmoniously rounded off with the 10% Merlot content when bottled.
