Montes Folly (750ml)
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.
Great density and structure with deep ruby red colour. Defined presence of mature dark fruits and cassis with perfectly integrated vanilla notes, coming from the best selection of French new oak barrels.
The wine is mouth filling, velvety and robust at the same time. Dense. In the mouth there are layers of ripe black fruit, black cherries and ripe plums, beautifully integrated with the smokiness typically expected from Syrah. Mouthfilling and lengthy. Widely considered to be Chile’s top Syrah.
A fabulous syrah with sliced steak, blackberry, dark chocolate and a flavorful finish. Full body, with polished tannins and a long finish. So much going on here. Made from two blocks of syrah on the estate. Drink now.
