The wine’s plushness, a hallmark of well-ripened Carmenère, is evident in every sip, culminating in a creamy finish that leaves you longing for more.

Critically acclaimed and awarded 98 points by James Suckling, Purple Angel Wine is recognized for its consistent delivery of Carmenère’s plushness when perfectly ripened. Its unique blend, comprising mainly Carmenère from Marchigue and Apalta, along with a touch of Petit Verdot, is praised for its fleshy and concentrated character. Fine-grained tannins extend to a very creamy finish, making this wine an exceptional choice that promises to evolve beautifully, reaching its peak around 2025.

Montes Purple Angel is more than just a wine; it’s a masterpiece that captures the essence of its origins. Recommended to be stored in a cool and dry place, away from light, and ideally served at 17-19ºC (63-66°F), this wine pairs splendidly with red meats and cheeses, making it a versatile companion for a variety of culinary delights.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
A consistent Purple Angel that really delivers the carmenere’s plushness when ripened well. Dark olives, blackberries and red chili chocolate with a splash of spice and cigar box. Fleshy and concentrated with plenty of fine-grained tannins that extend to a very creamy finish. 92% carmenere, around half from Marchigue and half from Apalta, with 8% petit verdot. Better from 2025.

carmenere
The Carmenere grape varietal, often dubbed the "lost grape of Bordeaux," has embarked on a fascinating journey of rediscovery, finding its truest expression in the vineyards of South America, particularly Chile.

This grape, with its deep dark skin, originated in Bordeaux but has discovered its ideal habitat in Chile. The country's climate and soil conditions provide the nurturing environment necessary for Carmenere's success. This late-ripening grape requires abundant sunshine and a warm summer to reach its fullest potential. It's no wonder that Chile's climate, with its sunny days and moderate rainfall, has proven to be the ideal match for...Please check Carmenere for more information
