Winemaker Notes

This new vintage of Montes Folly, maintains the depth of color and violet rim very characteristic of Syrah. The nose shows very ripe fruit, such as cherry, blueberry, blackberry, and strawberry, with characteristic and intense aromas of sweet spice and candy. There’s a very balanced element of toast from the French oak, adding complexity to the aromatic profile. On the palate the wine is balanced, with impressive body and a very long finish.

Highly recommended with red meats, lamb, veal, and pork chops.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous

The 2018 Syrah Montes Folly from Apalta spends 16 months in French oak, four-fifths new, and offers up blackberry jam, vanilla and smoked cigar box over a fleshy backdrop that adds the exotic touch one expects in a well-made Syrah. Taut and complex, it is more indulgent and juicy than the 2017 incarnation, with firm tannins.

Montes Winery Video

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.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
