Wine tasting notes

Montes Alpha Malbec is a blend of 45% of Malbec from our Marchigue Estate and 45% of Malbec from our Apalta Estate. The remaining is a 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Apalta. The Apalta vineyards provide elegant, ripe fruit with soft, firm and fine tannins, while Marchigue brings cooler weather notes like violets and red fruits. In the mouth, tannins have a lush structure, robustness and freshness. The Cabernet Sauvignon helps us to bring additional structure and complexity to the natural sweetness and softness of the Malbec variety.
