Winemaker's Notes:

Dark deep ruby in color. On the nose intense flowery scents of violet are evident while on the palate flavors are intense yet very elegant with a clear predominance of strawberries, making this a very appealing Pinot Noir. In the palate it is well balanced with soft tannins and a good level of acidity, making it a fresh, but not light, wine.

About Montes:

With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. Their premise, a clear belief that Chile had an untapped potential as a producer of quality wines, made them a benchmark for other wineries to follow. Its original four partners' total involvement and the continuous help of the angels that decorate their labels was key to their success. Two decades later, Montes is the fifth most important winery of Chile where Aurelio Montes continues leading the winemaking area with the same passion as the first day. Hard work and total focus on quality has led Montes to be one of the most successful and respected quality-driven wineries in Chile as they continue pioneering and breaking new grounds in wine.
