Montes, Malbec 2013, Colchagua Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: This purple-colored malbec has a distinct raspberry and blackberry nose dominated by black fruit (80%) and red fruit (20%).
There is also clove and cinnamon baking spice.
Aromas on the nose continue to the palate with baking spices becoming more perceptible. This wine is medium acidity and balanced overall.
Bottle Note: Our estates located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, are some of the the best winemaking areas in Chile. We aim to produce the highest quality wines which subtly marry rich fruit flavors with a perfectly balanced French oak ageing for six months. With a distinct intense deep purple color, this wine has plenty of fruit on the nose and is backed by well integrated French oak. Full flavored with a good structure and firm but soft tannins, it is perfectly suited to meat dishes and strongly flavored sauces.
