Think Malbec and South America, and it's Argentina that first pops into your head, doesn't it? Well meet one of the best value Malbec wines we've come across, and surprisingly, it's from Chile.

Montes make some of Chile's best wines, both red and white, but don't skimp on the attention to detail when it comes to their more modest bottles. Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley provide some really cracking Malbec grapes, the essential starting point for a great bottle of red wine.

Just under half of the wine was aged in premium French oak, which has given it some enticing vanilla and nutmeg notes, plus the ability to continue to improve for the next five or six years.

The Chilean Malbec that'll have you coming back for more.

The Producer

A dream became a reality in 1987 when Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, both highly experienced wine professionals, sowed the seeds for what was to become Montes. In 1988, they joined up with the other two founders, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, who brought their own complementary skills and expertise to the venture. They've succeeded in taking Montes wines from nowhere to more than 100 countries worldwide; by making ‘first growth’ wines respected and admired by the world’s critics and trade, and by drawing attention to what Chile was capable of producing.

The Winemaker

The Montes philosophy is one of minimal intervention in the winery, left to rest and mature with little handling. The Apalta winery was opened in December 2004, with the capacity to hold 2,300,000 litres of wine. Its construction heralded a big step forward in the production of the most acclaimed Montes red wines: Montes Alpha, Montes Alpha M, Montes Folly and Purple Angel. The technology and equipment in the winery is state-of-the-art, helping to produce some of the best wines in Chile.

The Region

Montes own vineyards in three distinct locations in Central Chile, with the Classic wines and Montes Folly both produced at the Apalta winery in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, an area now famed for premium red wine production. The south-facing vineyards sits within a natural bowl shapes in the hills, with some high altitude sites enjoying much lower temperatures than on the valley floor. The influence of coastal breezes moderates the overall temperatures and gives the grapes a very long, slow ripening season.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Skirt needs a relatively well-structured red to soften the meat flavours, so plump for a classic Malbec or Cabernet but remember not to go too full-bodied or risk drowning out the green sauce. Why not try this Montes Classic Malbec for size?

Roasted Quail Wrapped in Prosciutto

The classic gamey flavours of quail combined with salty ham call for a rich, decadent, earthy red wine with a liberal dash of spice. The oak background and rich blueberry notes from Chilean Malbec is a match made in heaven when it comes to game.
