Description

The grapes for Purple Angel come from Montes’ own vineyards in Apalta and Marchigïüe which are arguably two of the best sites in the Colchagua Valley. Everything is hand harvested and after fermentation in stainless steel the wine is aged of 18 months in mainly new oak barrels. A very small amount of Petit Verdot was blended in before bottling which augments the structure and adds a little extra spiciness. It has all the rich flavours typical of Carmenère with aromas of blackberries and figs combined with notes of nutmeg, dark chocolate and pastry. It’s superbly well structured with rich tannins, balanced acidity and a long, lingering finish.
