Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions. The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1987, broke the mould for premium wines in Chile. Since then, Alpha has developed to become the core range in the Montes portfolio. The grapes and sites are carefully selected in order to ensure varietal integrity and complexity. Viticulture is hands on rather than mechanical or industrial.
On the nose it is perfumed, intense. Aromas of papaya honey, ripe quinces and pears in syrup stand out, against a complex background of wild herbs reminiscent of chamomile. The palate is corpus, with a rich volume on the medium palate and a sweetness that is very balanced with its natural acidity. Very long and long finish.
