Montes Classic Merlot 2020


Grape Variety:

85% Merlot, 15% Carmenere

Tasting Notes:

Carmine-red in colour with violet tones. The clean nose shows great expression of fresh red and black fruit, such as plum, sour cherry, and crème de cassis. There are also pastry notes and sweet spice, such as cinnamon and nutmeg. The 10 months of contact with French oak adds subtle smoky notes, with hints of vanilla, chocolate, and café au lait. The palate is balanced, with smooth tannins and medium body, and an explosion of flavours that are in line with the aromas. The finish is long and smooth.

The vineyards are located in our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Its soils are derived from granite in different degrees of decomposition with varying slopes, effective rooting depths, organic matter, and types of geological formations, which makes these two terroirs very interesting.
Apalta is characterized by its colluvial and alluvial influences 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 slow ripening in our vineyards.
Marchigüe presents shallower soils with moderate slopes, primarily of colluvial origin and a presence of 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 its location close to the Coastal Mountains.
