Vibrant purple crimson, this Syrah has layers of complexity starting with ripe blackberry, black pepper and an underlying vein of vanilla from French oak. On the palate, the wine is precise, structured and concentrated, with refreshing acidity and fine tannins. The result is a rich and voluminous Syrah, which can be drunk now or cellared.

The Domaine
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions...
We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past 25 years. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process.
At the apogee of Montes’ production, this belongs in their highest tier of wines. Produced from Montes‘ own vineyards in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, Apalta and Marchigüe, it illustrates the potential Chile has to produce outstanding wine if yields are contained and the grapes are picked when fully ripe.

Food Pairing
Beef, duck, lamb and roast chicken.
