Montes 'Purple Angle' Carmenere 750ml
Purple Angel showcases the spicy touches typical of Carmenere, with ripe, gentle and soft tannins, it's a full-bodied, dense, rich, structured wine that combines red berries, spicy black fruit and dark chocolate on the mouth with alluring raspberry, wild strawberry and blackberry aromas on the nose. The wine is blended with a touch of Petit Verdot to enhance its structure, colour and cellaring potential. A mouth filling wine with a dense and very long finish.
This superb wine 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. In Chile, we consider it our ‘signature’ variety and call it the ‘Jurassic Park’ grape that returned from the past. Montes were pioneers on the Chilean wine scene when we created our super-premium wines: the Montes Alpha range, and icons Montes Alpha M and Montes Folly. Montes also led the way to quality by planting vineyards on steep hillsides. But we also know when to wait.
