Montes Alpha 'M' Apalta Vineyard 2017

Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions. Conceived as Project 'X' this very special wine is their dream come true. Aurelio Montes had seen this Estate in his younger days and was always absolutely certain that the best red wines from Chile would emerge from this "terroir" in the small Apalta valley of Santa Cruz (Colchagua). Almost 30 years later Aurelio's dream comes true and Project 'X' becomes Montes Alpha 'M', an extremely limited production red wine coming from the best vines of the Montes La Finca Estate. La Finca is a totally unique Estate that climbs the side of a granite mountain topped by native oak trees and is arguably one of the finest sites for red wine grape growing in Chile. With drip irrigation, traditional-style natural control at all stages, extremely low yields, hand-pruning and hand-picked grapes Montes Alpha 'M' is a single estate wine that offers the very best Chile can produce. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Merlot (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%) Alpha 'M' is a wonderfully complex wine with cassis, cigar box and vanilla aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannins and flavours of cooked black fruit and sweet spice.
