Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape Varieties:

92% Carmenere – 8% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes:

This new vintage of our Purple Angel has all of the character and complexity we are accustomed to. With an intense and deep carmine-red colour, the wine delivers a pool of fresh fruit aromas, such as blackberry, blueberry, red plum, and ripe cherry. There are also bakery, candied, and subtle spice notes that mix well with the aromas from the French oak, including balanced toast, vanilla, and mocha. The palate is balanced and vibrant, with complex body and extremely smooth tannins.

Critic Reviews

James Suckling – 98 points – James Suckling Top 100 Wines of World 2022 #90 (just released on 16 Nov 2022) – Montes Carmenere Petit Verdot Valle de Colchagua Purple Angel 2019

Consistently one of the best and most layered carmeneres from Chile and, indeed, the world. Intriguing Cuban cigar and roasted bay-leaf character to the blackcurrants, blackberries and exotic spices. Some sandalwood, black chocolate, cedar and baked red chili pepper, too. Full-bodied, creamy and voluptuous, but still fresh and juicy, with dried-leaf, dark-olive and finely ground cocoa-powder character. Dusty tannins and a long, refined finish. A blend of 92% carmenere from Apalta (46%) and Marchigue(46%) and 8% petit verdot from Apalta. Drink or hold.

Montes Purple Angel Wine – Chile best Carmenere

Montes Purple Angel represents a whole new dimension for Carmenère, the long-lost grape variety that recently resurfaced in Chile after being presumed extinct in Bordeaux, its original home. Purple Angel, has been recognised as Chile’s best Carmenere. Critics all over the world have named this wine a “wine from another planet”.


The vineyards that produce our Purple Angel are located in Finca de Apalta and El Arcángel de Marchigüe estates in the Colchagua Valley. Here, the soils are of granitic origin and vary in clay content, amount of organic matter, depth, and especially in types of fluvial and glacial stones, reflecting the tremendous diversity of soils in our vineyards.
Apalta has heterogeneous soils with some parcels highly influenced by the nearby Tinguiririca River and others that are the product of floods and erosion from the mountains high above. Soils tend to be deep on the plain and shallower at the foot of the mountains and in the higher slopes. The Carmenère vineyards for Purple Angel are optimally planted in flatter zones, where the soil is deeper and moisture retention is moderate.

Marchigüe is flatter, with lower hills and moderate slopes. Its soils are shallow -in some areas no more than 60 cm- with medium clay content and a high capacity for water retention. The Carmenère vineyards for Purple Angel are located in the flatter zones and are planted at a density of 5,555 plants/hectare (2,250/acre) and are Double Guyot-trained for a yield of approximately 3.5-4.0 tons/hectare (1.4–1.6 tons/acre). The leaves closest to the fruit were vigorously pulled in early January to leave the grapes
completely exposed, which allowed us to achieve even ripening, and more importantly, to reduce the amount of bell-pepper character pyrazines.


Harvest began when flavours in the grapes reached their peak. Picked by hand into 10-kg trays, the grapes arrived at our Apalta winery and were processed on the top floor, allowing us to use gravity to later transfer them gently into their fermentation tanks below. First, bunches were selected and destemmed, then individual grapes were sorted, leaving out those that were either too green or shrivelled Only those grapes in optimal condition continued to a cold maceration at 10 ºC for five to seven days. Selected yeasts were then added that ensured proper fermentation and allowed us to keep all the desired qualities of the grapes. Fermentation lasted 12–15 days at temperatures ranging from 26º to 29 ºC. Once fermentation was complete, the wine remained in contact with the skins, and its development was monitored by daily tastings.The objective of this maceration was to make a wine with good body and extract all of the positive elementsthat the skins provide. Next, the wine was racked to separate it from the skins. Then 80% was transferred to new French oak barrels, and 20% to second- and third-use barrels, where it remained for 16–18 months before bottling
