Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red, with violet notes. Ripen black fruit, like dry plum and fig; berry and blueberry, appearing some chocolate and black pepper then. Vanilla and toast notes given by the oak.

Elegant but with power. Sweet, soft and round tannins at the beginning. In half the mouth, we can feel its weight and power of a good structured wine. At the end of mouth, you can still feel a bit more but in a less shy way the French oak. Pleasant persistence, that invites us to continue enjoying Quatro.

53.7% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.15% Malbec 14.15% Syrah 18.0% Carmenère

About Vina MontGras:

VIÑA MONTGRAS, located in Chile’s Colchagua Valley, was established in the early 1990s by brothers Hernán and Eduardo Gras, together with their business partner Cristián Hartwig. Santiago Margozzini serves as head winemaker, with renowned California winemaker Paul Hobbs serving as consultant.

Colchagua Valley, a serene sub-valley of Rapel, is situated in Chile’s Central Region at the heart of the country’s wine-producing zone. Nestled between the Pacific Coastal Range to the west and the snow-capped Andes to the east, this rustic valley is a protected environment with positive maritime influences that foster a terroir ideal for producing quality wines.

Five ranges of MontGras wines are available: Estate, Reserva, Quatro, Limited Edition, and Ninquén.

In 1996 MontGras, along with five other area wineries, founded the Colchagua Valley Wine Route to promote and facilitate tourism and educate the public about the traditions of Chilean winemaking. Guided tours and tastings at MontGras are available Monday through Friday year-round, by appointment only.
