90% Merlot and 10% Carménère from Montes' own vineyards in Marchigüe located in the Colchagua Valley.
Fruit was cold soaked at 10°C for 7 days to extract aroma and colour, then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days. Kept on their skins for another 15-20 days. After malolactic fermentation, 55% of the final blend was aged in 25% new French oak barrels for 12 months to add complexity and roundness.
Tremendously aromatic plums, blueberries and cherries are supported by fresh caramel, sweet spices, mocha and a touch of blackcurrant liqueur. Strong but not overpowering, toasty aromas from the French oak are well integrated with the fruit bouquet. The palate features round tannins, very good structure and body with an impressive persistence.
