“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 end-September throughout mid-October. Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks of 20-40.000 kilos at 24-30ºC. Up to 26 days maceration. Pressed and racked to epoxy lined cement tanks where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Racked into a combination of 100% French oak barrels where it was aged for 6 months. The wine was bottles after fining and filtration.

Tasting notes

Intense dark cherry red in color, with an expressive nose of blueberry, black cherry and cedar wood with nicely incorporated notes of rose petals, licorice and toasted oak. Layered and ripe on the palate with firm tannins. This is a tasty, fruit forward effort that will deliver plenty of pleasure.
