Montes Alpha Syrah, Colchagua Valley, 2007
Estate bottled. D.O. Colchagua Valley, Apalta Vineyard. Aged in French oak for one year. Chilean red wine. From Chile with pride. Montes Alpha has become, in the past fifteen years, a benchmark for other Chilean wineries to follow, always in search for Chile's full potential. Having chosen the most difficult niche to focus on (hotels, restaurants, wine-merchants, delicatessen), we have constantly created beautifully complex but really friendly wines that, once tasted, generate solid loyalty from our beloved followers. To them, our gratitude. 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 perhaps the broadest range of quality wine in Chile today. Nourished with T.L.C. (tender loving care) all our vines and wines are the result of personal dedication, a great team and a little help from our angels. Alcohol 14.5% by vol. Produce of Chile.
