Size: 750 ml

Grape Variety:

100% Malbec

Tasting Notes:

Deep red-violet in colour, this new version of our Montes Classic Series Malbec shows great aromatic expression, with fresh black fruit like blueberry, plum and blackberry. There are certain floral aromas that appear together with aromas from the French oak, producing hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as dulce de leche and toast from the barrels. The mouth is consistent with the nose, with medium body and very silky tannins. The wine’s finish is very long.

The vineyards are located in our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Here, soils are derived from granite in different degrees of decomposition, there are a variation of slopes, effective rooting depths, organic matter, and types of geological formations, which make these two terroirs very interesting.
Apalta is characterized by its colluvial and alluvial inuences with varying depths and textures in the highest zones and more homogenous zones in the lower sectors due to the influence of the Tinguiririca River. Its Mediterranean climate gives us summers with cold nights and hot days, which helps the fruit to ripen slowly.
Marchigüe presents shallower soils with moderate slopes, primarily of colluvial origin and with angular stones at shallow depths. The climate is more severe than in Apalta and presents more wind and solar radiation as well as lower precipitation due to it being located so close to the Coastal Mountains.
