Montes Central Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions. We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past three decades. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process. Montes own 800 hectares of vineyards in Apalta and Marchigue located in Colchagua Valley as well a single vineyard Zapallar, located in coastal Aconcagua Valley. Their own vineyards cover 75% of their requirements. The other 25% of fruit is produced on vineyards they have planted, cultivated and picked. In other words, they control everything except the ownership of the land. In addition to this control over the vineyard, they also sell in bulk what is not good enough to go into the bottles that carry their label.
Pale lemon in colour, this Sauvignon Blanc is bright and lifted. Aromas of fresh pineapple and citrus are met with a well-balanced acidity and zesty finish on the palate.
