50% Carignano, 30% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre from Montes' own single vineyard 'La Finca Apalta' in Apalta, arguably one of the finest sites for red grapes in Chile.
Fruit was cold soaked at 10°C for 7 days to extract aroma and colour. Fermentation occurred in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 10 days following which the juice was kept on its skins for a further 20 days. After malolactic fermentation, 40% of the final blend was aged in one-third new French oak barrels for 12 months to add complexity and roundness.
The aromas are ripe and enticing with brambly wild berry fruit, dried figs and spice. On the palate, round and balanced with mouth-watering acidity and fine firm tannins. To drink now or age, this blend of Carignano, Grenache and Mourvèdre is unique to Chile.
