Reviews and Ratings

From the Colchagua Valley wine region, Montes Purple Angel 2016 pleases all the senses. Produced mostly from Chile's signature wine grape, Caménère, the wine is opaque violet-red in the glass. No shortage of aromas or flavours here, but all in perfect balance. Generous and juicy with ripe cherry, bell pepper, blackberry and plum flavours leading into dark sensuous chocolate, savoury dried herbs creamy on the palate finishing long and satisfying with balanced acidity. Buy it by the case. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
