Alpha M

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Chile / Colchagua Valley

Montes Alpha M is the result of an extremely limited production and a rigorous selection of the grapes, one by one, led by Aurelio Montes. Coming from the Colchagua Valley, it is one of the best and most awarded wines of Chile. The vineyards that give rise to Montes Alpha M are located in the Apalta zone of the Colchagua Valley. The soils are of granitic origin and are shallow in the upper, mountainous sectors. They vary in the clay content, depth, amount of organic matter, and especially the types of rocks and stones they are made up of. The soils origin can also range from fluvial to glacial, which shows the great diversity of soils in our vineyards. Some zones are influenced by the Tinguiririca River and others by mudslides and the detachment of material from high above in the mountain chain that delimits the valley.

tasting note

The nose presents a wide range of intense yet elegant aromas such as ripe red berries, crème de cassis, sweet spices, and candied fruit. Its time in French oak delivers notes of tobacco and vanilla, perfectly balancing the intensity of the fruit and the oak. The palate offers flavors of caramel and yogurt and heightens the notes of berries. This is a well-balanced and very vibrant wine with polished tannins and a very long finish.

food pairing

Highly recommended with roast turkey, beef fillet, sherried kidneys, duck confit.
