Our Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon is made with grapes selected from our vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. The vineyards are
irrigated with our water-saving winegrowing system developed by Aurelio Montes and his team through years of research that has
enabled us to know the precise amount of water we need to provide after the winter rains. This is especially important in years with
drier winters when irrigation is indispensible. This system has enabled us to reduce our irrigation by 65% while simultaneously
improving the quality of the fruit.
Deep, intense ruby red with a striking violet tone. The nose of this wine shows its habitual elegance and exhibits potent aromas of ripe
red and black fruits such as plums, figs, and blackberries. Soft notes of black pepper and charcuterie intermingle with interesting aromas
of tobacco and butterscotch from the French oak, which lend complexity and heighten the seductive aromatic profile of this classic
Chilean wine. The robust palate is very well balanced with nicely rounded tannins. Its excellent structure and volume lead to a
remarkable and pleasing finish that is very consistent with the nose.
