"Antu" Cabernet Sauvignon-Carmenère
85% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Carmenère
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 limited production Antu range takes its name from the word for “sun” in the language of the ancient Mapuche people who once inhabited this part of Chile.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
