Montes Alpha Carmenere 2019 3.33 out of 5 (3 customer reviews) RM136.00 RM108.80 Grape Varieties: 90% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes: Deep ruby-red with an eye-catching, violet hue. On the nose it’s complex and elegant. Pronounced, delicious aromas of ripe red and black fruit melt into inviting chocolate, mocha and brioche. The nose is well-balanced, with a little spice in the background. The French oak lends some toasted notes that complement the aromatic profile, while adding a slight sensation of sweetness. On the palate, it shows itself to be a wine of great Carmenère character and typicity, with rich acidity that is well balanced with the generous body. The tannins are velvety and give way to a long memorable finish. Critic Reviews 93 Points: JamesSuckling.com, June 2021 | Vintage 2019 Black fruit, herbs, chili, black olives and spices on the nose. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Creamy, but structured and fresh in the mouth. Layered with a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Food Pairing: Highly recommended with red meats, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops with a red wine and mushroom sauce.

Apalta is diverse, with some areas strongly influenced by the proximity of the Tinguiririca River and others by rainwater and eroded material from the mountain above. The soil tends to be deeper on the plain and shallower at the foot of the mountains and in higher areas. Carmenère vineyards are better planted where the soil is deeper and has moderate moisture retention. Marchigüe is flatter, with gentler hills. Its soil is shallow, in some places no more than 60 cm deep, with medium clay content and a high capacity for water retention. The Carmenère vineyards are located in the lower areas that are deep and have high moisture retention. Our vineyards have a density of 5,555 plants per hectare (2,250 ton/acre) and are double guyot trained for an approximate yield of 9,000 kg/ha (3,6 ton/acre). Leaves closest to the bunches are removed in early January, leaving the grapes completely exposed, to achieve even ripening and good levels of acidity and phenolic potential.
