Folly Syrah Apalta Vineyard
Top 0.5% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Syrah
From: Chile, Colchagua Valley AO
By: Aurelio Montes
A fine Syrah from the Montes vineyard on the steep slopes of the Finca Alpata, claimed by some to be one of the best sites for red grapes in Chile. A meticulous production process ensures that only perfect berries get to be bottled and enjoyed.
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes and three friends, with the simple ambition to produce the finest wine in Chile from what they consider to be the finest region. They seem to be doing rather well – they have gone from nothing to having their wines sold and enjoyed in over 100 countries. The reason for their success? An obsessive attention to detail, apparently. Montes Folly is filtered, fined and aged for eighteen months in French Oak barrels.
