Montes Alpha Carmenère is vinified from the Carmenère (90%) and Cabernet Sauvginon (10%) grape varieties.
In the glass sparkles this red wine is a beautiful ruby red. The bouquet delights with aromas of black pepper, ripe red berries and chocolate. The aromas of the nose are finely accompanied by a hint of vanilla and hints of dark plums. This Chilean red wine is soft and harmoniously balanced on the palate. Gentle tannins and wonderfully integrated oak notes lead into the seductive, wonderfully long finale.Vinification of the Carmenère Montes Alpha After the grapes have been
hand-picked, they are cold-mashed at 9°C for a total of 7 days.This is followed by alcoholic fermentation for 10 days. For the wonderful wood nuances and strong colour, this red wine is aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barriques.
This red wine is poured unfiltered onto the bottle.
