Palate Profile

Montes Folly is an adventurous wine of exceptional quality. Its grapes are grown on the steepest, highest slopes of our vineyards in Apalta, Colchagua Valley. For that reason, they deliver more colour, tannins, and flavours, making Montes Folly richly complex and powerful. Grapes are hand-selected and sorted on special selection tables. Montes Folly has been recognised as the best Syrah of Chile.

A very elegant nose offers aromas of blueberries and blackcurrants with light notes of chocolate and subtle toast.

Robust and well balanced on the palate with smooth tannins and a long and pleasing finish.

Highly recommended to decant for or at least one hour before drinking.

Critic Awards

The 2018 Syrah Montes Folly from Apalta spends 16 months in French oak, four-fifths new, and offers up blackberry jam, vanilla and smoked cigar box over a fleshy backdrop that adds the exotic touch one expects in a well-made Syrah.
