There is an explosion of creativity and energy; I predict that Spanish wines will become the darling of wine consumers throughout the civilized world” (R. Parker, issue 152). You will not find a better example of a creative explosion than with the Montgó Collection. Novel Spanish wines that energize the market with fresh new styles-modern wines that represent excellent value. The namesake Montgó mountain inspired founder to launch a good value product to meet the highest expectations of the consumer; it inspired our winemaker to create wines rich in character and unforgettable in expression.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness from throughout September. Gentle de-stemming and crushing. Cold soak at 5ºC during 72hours, including 15% saignée to concentrate the musts. Temperature controlled fermentation and maceration, in stainless steel tanks during 15-18 days, beginning at 18-20ºC during the first 2/3 and finishing at 25-26ºC. The wine has been aged in French oak barrels for 6 months. The wine was bottles after fining and filtration.

Tasting notes

Brilliant dark cherry red with violet hue. Intense rich aromas of sweet strawberries and mature plums and raisins with hints of tobacco, dark chocolate and minerals. Rich and juicy attack on the palate of fresh ripe berry fruits combined with gentle notes of tasted oak and a refreshing acidity and soft velvet tannins. Full bodied wine with a long aftertaste.
