Limited Selection: Sauvignon & Carmenère
Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 70% Cab Sauvignon + 30% Carmenère
From: Chile, Colchagua Valley AO
By: Aurelio Montes
This full bodied red was destined to be a Cabernet Sauvignon but it was decided that a helping handful of Carmenere grapes would make for a better wine. Grown on the steep slopes of the Montes vineyard of the Finca Alpata in Chile’s Colchagua Valley, considered to be one of Chile’s best wine producing regions.
The Montes vineyard is the lovechild of Aurelio Montes and three friends, who came together to create the best wines from what they consider to be the best region. The Monte collective quickly achieved international acclaim, with their ‘first growth’ wines well received by critics and reviewers. The Limited Selection Sauvignon and Carmenere is aged for eighteen months in American oak barrels, filtered and fined.
