Just 7 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean and located in the northern part of the Aconcagua Costa winemaking region, Viña Montes is the only winery with vines planted in this new D.O., characterized by cool, cloudy summer mornings, with sun at midday, and afternoons that see clouds reappearing with low temperatures. These conditions favor a slow ripening of the grapes that allow them to develop complexity and powerful aromas.
The nose is very aromatic with aromas of red fruits recalling strawberries and tart cherries in liqueur. Fragrances of wild flowers and violets deliver the illusion of sitting in the forest shade.
The palate is juicy, with very balanced acidity and the sweetness of round, ripe tannins. The generous and elegant mid-palate accentuates all of the sensations perceived on the nose, and the finish is remarkable and pleasing.
