Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon – Carmenere 2017
Out of stock
Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon- Carmenere 2017 is crafted by acclaimed winemaker Aurelio Montes and hails from two premier wine regions in Chile, Apalta and Marchigüe of the Colchagua Valley. The intense purplish-ruby red colour of this magnificent blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carmenere is no doubt further intensified by the hot summer temperatures and cool nights. The blend boasts an expressive nose of fresh aromas of red and black fruits, along with a subtle hint of nutmeg and chocolate, which is echoed in a versatile palate of juicy and rich acidity blended with well-rounded tannins. The force of this bold blend comes from the characteristic smoky and charred nose, which gives way to campfire and barbecue aromas with airtime. These aromas are supported by numerous flavors, such as wood, vanilla, pepper, black fruit, and char. The heavy finish of this blend is further enriched by notes of mint and oak. The dense summer and low yields of this harvest season have enabled Aurelio Montes to craft yet another remarkable Montes Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon- Carmenere 2017 to connoisseurs of smooth and decadent reds.
