This wine is a very elegant and subtle crystalline pink in color. Blending two varieties results in greater complexity on the nose and palate. The Syrah delivers a very intense and fruity nose with aromas of fresh red fruits, and the Grenache contributes a very fresh palate with a smooth and pleasing finish.
Highly recommended to pair with sushi, salmon with mushroom sauce, paella, pasta with shrimp salad, cannelloni, and lasagna.
With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. Their premise, a clear belief that Chile had an untapped potential as a producer of quality wines, made them a benchmark for other wineries to follow. Its original four partners’ total involvement and the continuous help of the angels that decorate their labels was key to their success. Two decades later, Montes is the fifth most important winery of Chile where Aurelio Montes continues leading the winemaking area with the same passion as the first day. Hard work and total focus on quality has led Montes to be one of the most successful and respected quality-driven wineries in Chile as they continue pioneering and breaking new grounds in wine.
