Montes Purple Angel 75cl contains a combination of Carmenere and Petit Verdot grapes, which give the wine its delicate yet powerful character. A Chilean wine, perfect to pair with food or drink without to experience everything that this Montes wine has to offer!
Carmenere grapes from both the La Finca de Apalta and Archangel estates are included in the red wine. Known as the 'Jurassic Park' grape in Chile, after coming back from extinction in 1993 following a bout of phylloxera in Bordeaux during 1880, the long lost grape from the two separate estates provides the wine with its elegance, strength and intense purple colour.
Meanwhile, the 8% of Petit Verdot included adds a wild berry flavour and also gives the wine its strong grip and structure.
Only the very best grapes are included within the Montes Purple Angel. The wine is also aged in oak barrels for 18 months, allowing it to develop the soft tannic structure and rich, complex flavour that makes it one of the most enjoyable full bodied red wines currently available.
What flavours are present?
Montes Purple Angel contains notes of luscious red berry fruits, blueberries and blackberries, while hints of dark chocolate and cigars are also present. The full bodied wine is also spicy and lively, while having a long lasting and elegant finish from the considerable amount of tannins present.
What food to pair with Montes Purple Angel?
The intense character and complexity of Montes Purple Angel means that it is perfect with red meats such as game, beef, lamb and pork that have been grilled, roasted, seared or braised. It also complements the strong and punchy flavours in rich tomato and spice based foods, without being too strong or overpowering.
More about the Montes Estate
The Montes estate was first established in 1988, when prominent figures in the Chilean wine industry, Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, decided to set up a boutique winery with the aim of producing wines of better quality than the standard available at the time.
The operation, which was initially named "Discover Wines", was an immediate success and pioneered the Chilean wine scene. Today, Montes produces a wide range of first-class and award-winning wines that are widely recognised for being intense, complex and incredibly stylish.
