Montes Alpha Pinot Noir 2018 750ml
Tasting Notes: Of characteristically ruby-red colour, this vintage of Montes Alpha Pinot Noir shows great character. The nose is reminiscent of fresh wild fruit, tart plum, with notes of damp forest, and flowers. Its time spent in lightly toasted French oak lends a spicy, sweet edge, like pastry, with notes of vanilla, nutmeg, and jam. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced, with a light to medium body and vibrant acidity. An elegant and complex wine that shows that when it comes to Chilean Pinot Noir, there’s a lot to say!
