Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) After several years of experimentation, Aurelio Montes settled on producing a rosé from Syrah (the grape he made famous in Chile with the country´s first Ultra Premium Syrah, Montes Folly). Montes Cherub is a seductive, elegant, dry wine, with an intense cherry-pink color. Expressive of the grape and its terroir, it shows distinct Syrah character: spiciness and hints of strawberry, rose and orange peel. There is a strong backbone of acidity with residual tannins that gives the wine structure. For a rosé, it shows good fruit concentration and a richness in texture across the palate that leads to a delightfully long finish.
