Montes Alpha Special Cuvee Pinot Noir 2018 750ml
94 - James Suckling
Tasting Notes: This latest vintage of our Montes Alpha Special Cuvée Pinot Noir is an unmistakably bright and clean, ruby-red colour. The nose impresses with pure, red berry notes, of cherry and redcurrant, as well as blueberry and blackberry. The wine’s time in French oak adds delicate toasted notes, beautifully integrated with the fresh fruit. The palate is very expressive, with exquisitely lively body, and tremendous breadth on the finish, confirming the impression on the nose.
