Degras Vina Montgras Sauvignon Blanc de Gras 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The beautifully neat vineyards of MontGras, in the locality of Palmilla, Colchagua, VI Region of Chile, represent the concrete testimony of the development and the desire to do things right that have always characterized the Gras brothers, Hernán and Eduardo, along with partner Cristián Hartwig. Individual parcels of grapes are selected from within the MontGras estate for their ripe fruit character and acidic balance. They are crushed gently and fermented cool at controlled temperatures in stainless steel. After settling, they are filtered and fined before bottling. This wine is straw yellow in colour with delicate citrus and melon aromas and a hint of fresh cut grass. Well balanced melon, citrus and herbal notes with a crisp acidity that makes this wine racy and refreshing. Good volume that fills the palate giving a pleasant and lingering finish. Drinks very well with shellfish - particularly prawns or lobster and will compliment salads, club sandwiches and pasta, particularly with chicken or ham.

Premium Wines Crafted With a Personal Touch The beautifully neat vineyards of MontGras, in the locality of Palmilla, Colchagua, VI Region of Chile, represent the concrete testimony of the development and the desire to do things right that have always characterized the Gras brothers, Hernán and Eduardo, along with partner Cristián Hartwig. Inspired by Hernán Gras, who has a brilliant winemaking trajectory in Canada, along with the entrepreneurial vision of his brother Eduardo and Hartwig's pragmatic businesses view, who comes from a winemaking family and who in addition has strong bonds with Colchagua, joined together to give to life to Viña MontGras in 1993, the first project of MontGras Properties. MontGras, that has always had state-of-the-art technology in all its processes, set out from its conception to be the winery with the best premium wine from Chile. It is no accident then, the great amount of international prizes that have recognized the professional work, the constant quality and the innovation of MontGras wines. In this, like corporative culture, people have been key. As Hernán Gras, Chairman of the Board says, "our philosophy has to do with producing quality Chilean wines at exceptional value, which reflect the specific terroir from where the grape come from. Although we count on the equipment and the technology, it is definitively our people that make the difference. To create a wine is a true art in which all the senses are used." Read less

Fruity but too sweet.
