More information

The Montes Alpha Merlot is a wonderful cuvée of Merlot (90%) and Carménère (10%). 

A deep, concentrated cherry-red colour shines in the glass. In the nose, aromas of ripe red and black berries (especially strawberries) fuse with juicy cherries. Fine floral notes harmonize perfectly with the spicy notes of oak maturity such as coffee, tobacco and vanilla. On the palate, this Chilean red wine is juicy and full-bodied with an aromatic plum fruit and notes of dark baked cocoa. Velvety soft ripened tannins give this red wine a gentle texture and a long, elegant and silky finish. 

Vinification of Montes Alpha Merlot The grapes grow in the vineyards of the highly acclaimed

Finca de Apalta, located southwest of the capital Santiago de Chile in the Apalta Valley. The Apalta Valley has become one of the best - if not the best - red wines in Chile. 

After careful hand-picking of all grapes at optimum ripeness, they are brought into the wine cellar - complete destemming and mashing takes place. After alcoholic fermentation, this wine is still on the mash to concentrate the strong aromas, the wonderful color and the silky tannins from the berry skins. It is aged for 12 months in French oak barriques. 

Food recommendation for the Merlot Montes Alpha

We recommend this dry red wine from Chile with pasta with wild mushrooms, corn spoularde, turkey roast from the oven with berry compote or chestnuts, game birds, lamb shoulder or beef stew with herbs or with dishes of oriental cuisine.
