THE CELLARS NOTES
When Montes started production of its Alpha range it broke the mould for premium wines in Chile, and showed that in the right hands, Chile can stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world.
Montes Alpha grapes and sites are carefully selected, viticulture is hands on, not mechanical. This Pinot Noir is fragrant and a classic expression of cool climate Pinot. Excellent value.
Beautiful and delicate ruby-red color. Intense and elegant nose, with predominance of strawberry and flowery notes, that together make this Pinot Noir a very lively, harmonious and generous wine.
On the palate it is clean, well balanced, with soft rounded tannins and a good level of acidity. The wine is long in the mouth and shows well-integrated, balanced oak. The wine is very lightly filtered, making the aromas and color very expressive of Pinot Noir.
Veal Marsala has the right about of body to match this medium bodied Pinot.
We also recommend pairing with salmon or other fatty fish, roasted chicken or pasta dishes. this wine is ideal with duck and other game, casseroles and stews like beef bourguignon.
