Montes Alpha Pinot Noir Aconcagua Costa DO

2015

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red colour. The nose presents aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries, white pepper and a touch of violets. Medium-bodied, the palate has silky, smooth tannins, fresh and vibrant acidity, and shows well-integrated French oak. The long and perfumed finish is smooth and elegant.

Production Notes

The grapes were cold soaked at 10°C 5-7 days to extract aroma and colour, especially important for thin-skinned Pinot Noir. After that, the grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and then kept on their skins to give structure and colour for another 15-20 days. After malolactic fermentation, the final blend was aged in French oak barrels (25% new) for 10-12 months.
