Montes Alpha Syrah 2012
A superb syrah of intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco, and leathery notes. Strong and full bodied on the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant, and satisfying aftertaste.
90% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Viognier. 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.
