Montes Alpha Pinot Noir 2012
A pinot noir of beautiful, bright ruby-red color. Its elegant nose shows a predominance of red berries and flowery scents, accompanied by hints of vanilla aromas from its oak aging. All together make this a very lively and generous wine, showing substantial flavor despite its delicacy. In the palate, it is medium bodied and well balanced, presenting plum, black cherry, and black tea flavors. Its velvety texture, harmonious level of acidity, and earthiness add elegance to the wine that continues with a lingering finish.
100% Pinot Noir. Aurelio Montes has pioneered in premium and ultra-premium wines, in discovering new wine regions like the superb Apalta Valley and Marchigue (both in Colchagua), in establishing low-yield, steep mountain vineyards and in doing so has gained wide, international recognition. Wine Spectator said it briefly: "Montes offers prehaps the broadest range of quality wine in Chile today." Nourished with T.L.C. (tender loving care), all their vines and wines are the result of personal dedication, a great team, and a little help from their angels.
