Miguel Torres ‘Manso de Velasco’ Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon

A tribute to Manso de Velasco, Governor of Chile during the colonial period. A brave, enterprising man, known for his strength on the battlefield, and founder of the city of Curicó, where these vines grow. The Finca Manso de Velsaco estate is exclusively given over to Cabernet Sauvignon, which produces this intense, deep-colored wine. This wine is made using only grapes from vines planted in 1900.

In the deep, slightly rocky and sandy soils, the old Cabernet Sauvignon vinestocks produce limited quantities of grapes that show the typical characteristics of the variety. The organic and dry-farmed vineyard functions as its own ecosystem. Many of the sizable holes in the trunks of the oldest vines have become nests for birds that protect the vineyard from disease and pests.

Aged in casks of French Nevers oak for a minimum of 18 months (45% new barrels, 55% 2nd fill) this shows an intense, dark ruby colour. exquisite fruity-spicy bouquet with the classic grape aromas of ripe dark fruits, blackberries, wild berry jam and subtle hints of leather Taste: uniquely elegant and powerful on the palate with velvety ripened tannins, in the end wonderfully long and persistent with an aromatic aftertaste of dark fruit, spices and fine toasted notes.

Montes ‘Purple Angel’ 2018

This superb wine represents a whole new dimension for Carmenere, the long-lost grape variety that recently resurfaced in Chile after being presumed extinct in Bordeaux, its original home. Purple Angel, has been recognised as Chile’s best Carmenere. Critics all over the world have named this wine a ‘wine from another planet’ .

The vineyards that produce Purple Angel are located at our Finca de Apalta and El Arcángel de Marchigüe estates, in the Colchagua Valley. Here the soils are of granitic origin and vary in clay content, amount of organic matter, depth, and, notably, types of fluvial and glacial stones, reflecting the tremendous diversity of soils in our vineyards. Apalta has heterogeneous soils with some blocks highly influenced by the nearby Tinguiririca River and others produced by the erosion of the mountains high above. Soils tend to be deep on the plain and shallower at the foot of the mountains and on the higher slopes. The Carmenere vineyards for Purple Angel are optimally planted in lower zones, where the soil is deeper and moisture retention is moderate. Marchigüe is flatter, with low hills and moderate slopes.
80% of this wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels; 20% was aged in second and third use French oak barrels. Purple Angel shows a deep, carmine-red colour, typical of Carmenere. The aromas are complex, with pronounced black fruit, like blackberry and ripe blueberry. There is also dried plum, cooked cherry and candied fruit. Its 18 months in French oak gives a complex nose of toasted aromas, nuts, sweet spice and touches of dairy and vanilla. On the palate, the flavours follow on from the aromas, with sensations of dark fruit and dairy well balanced with the toast. It is finely balanced, with good body and a long finish.
