BACKGROUND

Viña MontGras, in Chile’s Colchagua Valley, was established in 1992 by brothers Hernán and Eduardo Gras, together with their partner Cristián Hartwig. The fruit of a mission to produce estate-grown wines of exceptional quality and originality, the MontGras estate today encompasses nearly 500 acres planted to vine in the heart of Chile’s wine-producing region. Since the first harvest in the early 1990s, MontGras wines have earned over 200 medals and awards worldwide, garnering international critical acclaim. The Reserva Range reflects the MontGras philosophy, passion, and skill in showcasing each wine’s unique terroir.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Grapes are hand-harvested at the end of March, with fermentation taking place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Total skin contact for 16 days. After the maceration period, 40% of the wine is aged for eight months in French and American (80/20) oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby red with violet undertones color. Expressive aromas of plums and cherries, vanilla, cedar and a touch of mint. Ripe plum flavors mingle with deep, dark fruit flavors. A touch of mint and toasty oak give this wine an elegant and charming finish. Goes great with pasta, meat, grilled vegetables, fish with creamy sauces, rice dishes, and semi-hard cheeses.
