Montes Alpha Syrah 2006
is from “La Finca” Estate, in the Apalta Valley, The scarcest of the ALPHA line, it shows how promising the Apalta Valley slopes are. Yield is very low, only 6 tons per hectare. It has been aged in French oak for one year and had only one soft filtering. Aurelio has added 7% of Cabernet Sauvignon and a 3% of Viognier to the final blend. Montes Alpha Syrah 2006 has an intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco and leathery notes. It is strong and full bodied to the palate, with soft and mature tannins and has a very long, elegant and satisfying after taste. A superb Syrah.
