The vineyards that produce the grapes for our Montes Limited Selection Pinot Noir are located in the Casablanca, Leyda and Zapallar Valleys, all of which can be found in the Aconcagua Wine Region. The grapes were handpicked into 22 – 26 lbs trays during the very early hours of the morning to keep the temperatures low and protect the aromas. Upon arriving at the winery, the bunches were carefully selected, destemmed, and submitted to a second selection of the berries. The grapes were gently dropped directly into open-top stainless steel tanks, where the whole berries underwent a 5-day pre-fermentation maceration at 45º F to very gently extract color and aromas.
Vibrant ruby red in color with an expressive nose featuring aromas of tart cherries, fresh strawberries, and a backdrop of rose petals and wild herbs. The palate is well balanced with rich natural acidity that makes this a fresh and juicy wine. Its perfectly rounded tannins give this wine medium volume and good persistence with an elegant, fruity finish.
Highly recommended with fettuccine Alfredo, mild, cream soups (mushroom, chicken), veal cutlets, salmon, Camembert cheese, and mushroom risotto.
