Purple Angel showcases the rich flavours from the 92% Carmenere while the 8% edition of Petit Verdot gives the wine spice, structure, acidity and colour. Ruby red in colour, the wine offers distinctive red and blackberry notes on the nose and on the palate densely concentrated with spice chocolate and mocha. Full-bodied and firm with polished tannins.

Carmenere, Petit Verdot

The Montes winery has driven Chile’s ultra-premium wine since establishment in 1988. Founded by Aurelio Montes and his partners have created wines of the highest quality and singular design, bringing Chile’s most unique vineyard to life through expressing modern technology, disciplined winemaking and attention to detail.

The grapes destined for Purple Angel come from vineyards in Marchigüe and Apalta in the Colchagua Valley. The soils are of granitic origin with variations in clay content, organic matter, depth, and especially in the types of rock found, which are of fluvial or glacial origin. Apalta’s soils are very heterogeneous, with zones that are highly influenced by the Tinguiririca River and others influenced by floods and the detachment of material from high in the mountains that delineate the valley. The soils are generally deep in the lowlands and shallower at the foot of the mountains and higher areas. In the case of the Carmenère, the vineyards are preferably located in the flat zones, where the soil is deeper and has moderate moisture retention.
