Food Pairings for Mont Rochelle Reserve Sauvignon Blanc L
Lightly herbal on the nose, very crisp and refreshing. A pretty tasty wine. Not screaming grassiness, but enough herbaceous-ness to be varietally true. The bottle had a trio of medals on it: International Winery of the year 2002 (W&S); 2002 Wine Personality of the year (Aurelio Montes - selected by the Chilean Agricultural Society) and New World Winery of the Year 2002 (WE).
Was really curious over the great reviews for the Purple Angels, but after buying one myself, found it to be just good, not legendary... had all the must-haves for a Carmenere though... pretty decent
Steely, flinty pineapple nose. Good acidity, not sour. Clean, true to varietal. Green taste. $16
Definitely Sauvignon Blanc. Big lemon and grapefruit, steely, dry. Light-medium body. Long. No oak. Pleasant summer dinner wine. $16
<Aroma> Dark Fruit, Oak <Mouth> Full, Sour, Dry
Asparagus on the nose. Flavors of lemon rind and lime zest in the front followed by veggies and a grassy flavor on the mid palate. Ending with grapefruits, citrus, and a hint of granny smith apples. definitely an excellent value wine.

Montes Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley 2007: Ausbau in Stahltanks, empf. Trinktemperatur 6-8°C, lagerfähig 2 - 4 Jahre ab JahrgangJahrgang: 2007Inhalt: 0,75LRegion: San Antonio-Leyda ValleyWeingut: MontesRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Restzucker: trockenRestsäure: Alkoholgehalt: 13,5 % Weißwein
Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - 90 points, Wine & Spirits/ A classic San Antonio sauvignon, this wine’s citrus and mineral notes fill an unctuous texture, reflecting the warmth of the 2012 vintage. It’s balanced by costal acidity that prickles on the tongue.
The 2007 Alpha Carmenere is a superb rendition of this fascinating grape variety. A saturated purple in color, it has a superb aromatic array of spice, lavender, incense, smoke, and blueberry. Layered, plush, and concentrated, it has excellent depth and grip, enough well-hidden structure to evolve for several years, and a long, fruit filled finish. Drink it from 2012 to 2020. Fans of this Chilean specialty should be thrilled because this wine is well made and complete. Mint, plum, blackberry, cola and fine leather grace the nose, while the palate sings with forward but balanced black fruit and tobacco flavors. Elevated Carmenère; great for the faithful as well as newcomers. - M.S. Solid, with juicy black cherry, currant, bramble and roasted vanilla notes. Theres nice grip on the finish. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,000 cases made. -JM
Nicely focused the grassy ripe citrus '07 Montes Classic Series Sauvignon is picture-perfect; well-balanced in everyway this wine truly delivers; lively aftertaste.

Wine Name: Montes Alpha Carmenere 2007, Category: Wine, Brand: Montes, Winery: Montes Wines, Price: $19.51, Bottle Size: 750 mls., Bottles per Case: 12, Made In: Chile, State: Colchagua Province, Region: VI O'Higgins Region, Appellation: Colchagua Valley, Vintage: 2007, Varietal: 90% Carmenère and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, Wine Type: Red Wine
From our "La Finca" Estate in the Apalta Valley (Santa Cruz D.O., a sub-denomination of Colchagua Valley). Aurelio evaluated releasing a full Carmenère wine, as we have pure Carmenère vines, but after many combinations decided that this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carmenère (specified as such in the main label) brought forward the best of both varieties. Aged in American oak and with only one soft filtering, it provides great value. With beautiful and intense ruby red color, it has a very elegant aroma with notes of chocolate, cigar box, coffee and also of vanilla and butterscotch. To the palate it is ample, full, of medium body, soft and generous, with a long aftertaste. Decanting is recommended for at least 30 minutes. It can be cellared for four years or enjoyed now. Denomination of Origin: Colchagua Valley.
