TASTING NOTES
Deep cherry-red in colour, nuanced with violet. The nose is intense and complex, with ripe black fruit, fig, and spicy black
pepper, intermingling with tobacco and meatiness, delicate notes of dark chocolate and a subtle touch of toast. The palate is
well balanced and broad, with incredibly smooth tannins lending structure and weight on the mid-palate, leading to a long and
elegant finish.

Additional Information

  • Description
  • VINEYARDS The vineyards that give rise to our Montes Alpha Syrah are located in two very distinct zones of the Colchagua Valley—Apalta and Marchigüe. These two areas have soils of granitic origin at differing stages of decomposition, as well as highly variable depths and amounts of clay and organic matter. Apalta is very heterogeneous, with zones that are strongly inuenced by the proximity of the Tinguiririca River, by ooding, and by erosion of material from high above in the mountains. The soils tend to be deep on the plain and thinner in the foothills and upper areas. The Syrah vineyards are intentionally planted in very steep sectors (45º). Marchigüe is atter, with lower hills with gentler slopes. Its soils are shallow—in some cases no more than 60 cm—with medium clay content and a high capacity for water retention. This vineyard also produces Viognier, which makes up 3% of the blend and is vinied together with the Syrah. Leaves are pulled from around the Syrah bunches after veraison, to encourage good ventilation.
