VIDEO 105. AURELIO MONTES JUNIOR

January 18. 2016

Aurelio Montes junior is the winemaker of Chile’s most important and famous winery. His Cabernet sauvignons belong to the finest wines of South America wine world. Notably his Alpha Montes range. His father, Aurelio Montes, created and established a high quality style of producing excellent red wines like Piero Antinori in Tuscany or Angelo Gaia in Piedmont. Nowadays father and son are working together closely. Aurelio Montes junior built a new winery in the Argentinian wine region Mendoza – named Kaiken. Although these wines aren’t so renowned like their counterparts from Chile, they are increasing their popularity continously.

Well, I met Aurelio Montes junior in September 2015 in Düsseldorf and was impressed by his relaxed and focused character.
To be honest, before the interview and tasting, I had a strict idea about how South American wines should taste. Just to let you know – I was really surprised about these fresh and focused wines from another world.

PURPLE ANGEL 2012

Blend of 92% Carménère and 8% Petit verdot. This wine is awesome. Deep purple hued-colored. From the beginning it bursts out a garden of roses out of the glass. Convoyed by aromas of plums, blackberries, physalis and dark chocolate. Silky on the palate with stunning juiciness and softness. No fat boy. Focused with supple and high quality tannins and a harmonious acidity. Long finish. Best now through 2028+.
