About the winery

The slopes of Apalta in Colchagua (in the Central Valley) have a half-moon shape, with a unique micro-climate, defined by the mountains and Tinguiririca river. The best slopes in this valley, with a 45° average inclination and over 49° in the upper slopes, are found on our estate where we grow the grapes for our MONTES ALPHA "M”. Having a south-west exposure allows us to have exactly the right level of hours of sunlight (measured in degree days). The ocean breeze (only 80 kms/50 miles away) provides a cooling efect, ideal for slow maduration of the grapes. The warm days but cool winds at night with their lowering temperatures give a micro-climate particularly suited for growing red grape varieties. Add to this, the poor soils with a small organic composition, drip irrigation, and the high density of vines (over 6,667 per hectare) make growing conditions perfect.

Consumer Reviews - Montes Alpha - Syrah 2004


Tom Burnakis  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Jacksonville  (United States)
**** Very good 
Nicely balanced
Dark fruits, spice and pepper , vanilla and smoke nose jammy but with sufficient acidity to end nicely and with a clean palate. This wine was one of the Wines of the year in 2004 or 2005 in Wine Spectator and it is well deserved. I never like to be without one in the rack because it always gets compliments. Wonderful with barbecued ribs, delightful alone – a winner.
