Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon Edicion Limitada 30 Anos
Region: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Varietal: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon & 6% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: Deep and intense ruby red colour. On the nose, expressive aromas of ripe black fruit, sweet tobacco and spices, all perfectly integrated. The palate is rounded and enveloping, with a sensation of freshness, refined tannins and a long lingering finish. Best enjoyed at 17 to 19 ºC after decanting for at least 30 minutes. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years. Pair with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with bolognese sauce, lamp chops & mushroom sauce.
This wine is a limited release by Montes for their 30th Anniversary. Aurelio Montes Junior, Chief Winemaker, has named this as 'Petit Montes Alpha M'. Made using grapes from the same vineyards meant for Alpha M in Apalta Valley & Marchigue Valley, aged for 12 months in oak with a small portion of Cabernet Franc. This special blend is unlike the all-time favorite Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Merlot.
