From the famous Ralph Steadman label, to the wry name, Montes Folly is just that - a near absurd idea that at first seemed to show a complete lack of sense. Aurelio Montes set his sights on the highest slopes of his Apalta Vineyard estate, which resemble Côte Rôtie and Hermitage in the Rhône with 45 degree inclines, and plenty of hard scrabble. Almost impossible to cultivate, stupidly expensive, and untested, it proved to be brilliant decision in the end. Syrah has been in Chile since the mid-nineties, and immediately showed great promise. Apalta’s granitic soils, a long growing season, abundant sunshine and cool nights are just what this aristocratic grapes loves. Purple in the glass, the 2014 shows heady violet perfume, with notes of menthol and blueberries. The blockbuster palate is awash with dark berried fruit, orange oil, pepper spice and smoke. Huge in the mouth, layered flavours build to a long and supremely toasty finish, where Folly’s two year rest in the finest French oak casks is on full display. Decant for an hour or so, and serve with your best beast.
