MONTES LIMITED SELECTION
Cabernet Sauvignon - Carmenère

The Wine

  • From our estate in the Apalta Valley. Aurelio considered releasing a pure Carmenère wine, but after trialling many combinations, decided that this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carmenère brought forward the best of both varieties. Aged in American oak and with only one soft filtering.Beautiful, intense ruby-red color, with an elegant aroma of chocolate, cigar box and coffee, plus touches of vanilla and butterscotch.
    Medium-bodied, soft and generous, with a long aftertaste. Decanting is recommended at least 30 minutes before serving. It can be cellared for up to four years or enjoyed now.
    Denomination of Origin: Colchagua Valley.
