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.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

The Intriga Estate lies over millenary alluvial soils planted with vines that average 30 years. Hand-harvested between April 10th – May 17th, 2012 with total skin contact for 28 days. Aged 100% in French barrels, 25% new and 75% second use, during 21 months. The wine was bottled without filtering.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby red with purple notes in color, with herbal and fruity aromas that blend together well giving it a delicate, elegant nose. Its flavors are of fine and tense texture with soft, round tannins. A nice mixture of fat and grip. Because of itd structure and power, it pairs well with marbled red meats, fine cheeses, duck confit, and lamb.
