Purple Angel
Red wine

Viña Montes, Purple Angel 2018

RRP £52.50

The much lighter touch that has been a feature of this wine since 2016 has turned it from a red I admired into one that I actively want to drink. Made from Carmenère, with 8% Petit Verdot, it’s a refined, detailed, focused Purple Angel with subtle 80% new wood, engaging freshness, lots of leafy perfume, hints of graphite and plum, and thrilling palate length.
