In 1987, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both highly experienced wine professionals, wanted to realize their dream of producing Chilean wines a quantum-leap higher in quality than the standards of the time. In 1988, they joined up with the other two founders, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, who brought their own complementary skills and expertise to the venture. And thus Montes was born.

Tasting Notes

The wine is aged in French oak barrels for one year and has only one soft filtering. This is a unique Syrah in that a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and, in the tradition of Northern Rhone producers, some Viognier, is added to the wine. Intense ruby red with lifted floral, tobacco and leather notes. A rich, full-bodied wine with round approachable tannins and a long finish. A superb Syrah.
