MONTES ALPHA Malbec
This wine is a blend of 45% Malbec from Marchigüe Estate and 45% Malbec from Apalta Estate. The remaining is a 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Apalta. Montes Alpha Malbec is a red-colored intense, almost black-looking wine. To the nose it expels notes of red fruit in unison with spices and black pepper. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months developing superior complexity both in aroma and on the palate. This is a soft, elegant wine of silky tannins with a long, delightful finish.
