  • About this winery

    Viña Montes is a modern-day success story. Started in only 1988, Montes has quickly realized the dream of its founders: pioneering the production of premium quality, “first-growth” Chilean wine respected by critics and trade, while elevating the winemaking profile of Chile on the world stage. Reaching such lofty goals in a very short period of time makes one wonder if the original founders Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand had an angel watching over their...

  • Tasting notes

    Very lively and expressive cherry-red color with violet at the rim. Aromas of ripe black and red fruits predominate on the nose, recalling blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries that meld very well with delightful notes of pastry and dulce de leche. A spicy note on the backdrop accompanies the toasted aromas from the French oak, which also lends structure and a very pleasing sense of sweetness. Well balanced with rich acidity, the Montes Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium-bodied wine with incredibly smooth tannins and a delicious perfumed finish.

  • Viticultural notes

    The vineyards are located in our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. The soils are derived from granite in different degrees of decomposition with varying slopes, effective rooting depths, organic matter, and types of geological formations, which make these two terroirs very interesting. Apalta is characterized by its colluvial and alluvial influences with varying depths and textures in the highest zones and more homogenous zones in the lower sectors due to the influence of the Tinguiririca River. Its Mediterranean climate creates summers with cold nights and hot days, which helps slow ripening in our vineyards. Marchigüe presents shallower soils with moderate slopes, primarily of colluvial origin and a presence of angular stones at shallow depths. The climate is more severe than in Apalta, with greater wind and solar radiation and lower precipitation due to its location close to the Coastal Mountains.

  • Winemaking notes
