The Merlot Reserva of Montes is a wonderful red wine cuvée from the grape varieties Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%).
The colour of this Chilean wine shines in a rich purple red with violet reflections in the glass. The bouquet reveals strong aromas of juicy raspberries, ripe blueberries and fresh currants. Add a subtle hint of mocha chocolate and delicate vanilla tones. On the palate, this red wine delights with its very juicy and full-bodied personality. The fresh spices - thanks to the wood insert - harmonize perfectly with the berry fruit nuances - especially plum sauce comes to the fore. The fruit acid is lively and the fine tannins are wonderfully integrated. The spicy reverberation is balanced, lively and long-lasting.

Grape varieties grow in the beautiful Valle de Colchagua.The
ripe grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature in a stainless steel tank. This is followed by ageing for six months in French oak barrels. Only before bottling is this wine refined with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
