Montes Alpha Syrah 2018

RM120.00

Grape Varieties:

90% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Viognier

Tasting Notes:

Intense red colour with violet border. On the nose, the wine is potent without losing its elegance. There are clear notes of ripe black fruit like plum, fig and blueberry. There is also great complexity with candied aromas, both of fruit and sweet spices, like baked goods. The 12-months aging in barrels lends a nice level of toast, plus hints of vanilla and dulce de leche. On the palate, the tannins are smooth and well balanced with lots of structure and a long finish. It is begging to be paired with something to eat.

JAMES SUCKLING (2019) – 94 Points

Food Pairing:

Highly recommended with red meats, Mongolian beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, and lamb chops with mushroom sauce.

Description

VINEYARDS

The vineyards that give rise to our Montes Alpha Syrah are located in two very distinct zones of the Colchagua Valley – Apalta and Marchigüe. These two areas have soils of granitic origin at differing stages of decomposition, as well as highly variable depths and amounts of clay and organic matter.
Apalta is very heterogeneous, with zones that are strongly influenced by the proximity of the Tinguiririca River, by flooding, and by erosion of material from high above in the mountains. The soils tend to be deep on the plain and thinner in the foothills and upper areas. The Syrah vineyards are intentionally planted in very steep sectors (45º).
Marchigüe is flatter, with lower hills with gentler slopes. Its soils are shallow—in some cases no more than 60 cm—with medium clay content and a high capacity for water retention. This vineyard also produces Viognier, which makes up 3% of the blend and is vinied together with the Syrah.
Leaves are pulled from around the Syrah bunches after veraison, to encourage good ventilation.
