Purple Angel - the supercarmenere from Montes.

Carmenere only resurfaced in Chile about 12 years ago - it was believed extinct since phylloxera hit the Bordeaux region in the 1880's. Chile is currently the grape's only home and the Chileans know it as a Chilean varietal - they call it their 'Jurassic Park grape'.

Montes is the pioneer of super-premium Chilean wines such as the Montes Alpha range, but they exercised great patience with the Purple Angel, not releasing the wine at all until they felt that it could not be improved. Customers tell us it was worth the wait - with 18 months in new American and French oak, the blend of 92% Carmenere and 8% Petit Verdot is a triumphant expression of the rich, fresh and fruit forward Chilean style. A brilliant effort.
