MONTES ALPHA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2021 MAGNUM 1.5L
Country: Chile, Colchagua Valley
Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Merlot 10%.
AWARDS
Wine & Spirits Magazine: 90/100
Wine Spectator: 90/100


Montes Alpha is the pioneer wine that showed the way for all other Chilean premium wines. It remains #1 in the Chilean premium wine niche, Montes having proven early on credibility as a world-class premium wine producer. All Montes Alpha wines have received `Top Scoring` and `Best Value` from the influential Wine Spectator magazine: quite an achievement for Chilean wines at this price level.

Ageing: 55% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels (1st, 2nd, and 3rd use) for 12 months.

Tasting Notes: The complex nose offers outstanding aromas of ripe black fruits such as figs and blackberries complemented by notes of crème de cassis, while spices such as cayenne pepper appear over the back of dark chocolate, which masterfully envelopes subtle aromas of leather and tobacco. The palate with perfectly rounded tannins triggers an explosion of the fruit on the mid-palate.

Food Pairing: Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lambchops with Cabernet and mushroom sauce.

The Grape
Cab.Sauvignon
The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.
