Reticent on the nose with sweet aromas of coffee and cola plus a hint of rhubarb. This gains nice subtle nuance with some air. A bit tightly knit in the mouth, this is not a big wine but it shows a bit of firmness to the tannins. There are nicely layers of flavor here, dried herbs, well judged oak, soft warm red plum and cherry fruit. It's all knit together very well if in an unassuming package. The finish is fairly long, and show a lovely edge of sour berry fruits and nice ripe fruit tannins with just a hint of vanilla. Subtle and elegant. 88pts

This wine shows what Chile does really well from one of my favourite producers, that goes from strength to strength. It's very well made and youthful, great to drink now. BUT it is more than a 'cheap' varietal. There's perhaps more expression of the grape than the terroir but it's all there - gooseberries on the nose with minerally overtones, a hint of damp grass and bell peppers too. It has a lovely balance of green fruits and fresh acidity, and is quite rich. Good finish. 17/20

Dark and roasted, with lots of espresso, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa flavors layered with plum sauce and black currant notes. Sage and espresso linger through the finish. For fans of the heftier style. Drink now through 2012. 2,600 cases imported. -JM

Medium body with citrus, melon and herbflavors that linger on the palate and endwith a crisp finish.

Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley 2009 - Montes: Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley 2009 - Weißwein von MontesEin klares, glänzend-helles Gelb mit grünlichen Reflexen zeigt dieser kräftige Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley von Montes im Glas. Er duftet sehr rebsortentypisch und frisch, mit reichhaltigen exotischen Noten und feinem Zitrusaroma. Den Gaumen schmeichelt er knackig frisch mit leicht kitzelnder Säure, die mit der Zunge spielt, dennoch ist er sanft. Er zeigt außerdem kraftvolle Aromen von tropischen Früchten und deutliche Mineralität und ein beeindruckend langes Finale. Dies ist genau der Wein für einen lauen Sommerabend, begleitet aber ebenso z.B. frischen Salat mit gebratenen Garnelen oder Hühnchen.    Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: San Antonio-Leyda ValleyRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol. %Restsüße: trockenInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 10°CFassreife: Ausbau in StahltanksLagerfähigkeit: 2 - 4 Jahre ab Jahrgang  Auszeichnungen des Montes Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley 2009:90 Parker Punkte90 Punkte - Wine Spectator, Advance, 31 März 2009 Weißwein > Chile > San Antonio-Leyda Valley

Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Montes: Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Weißwein von MontesDieser wunderbar attraktive, tropische Duft des Montes Sauvignon Blanc begeistert! Dieser frisch-fröhliche, leichte und prickelnde Wein leuchtet hellgelb-zitronig im Glas, auch weil komplett auf Barrique-Ausbau verzichtet wurde. Am Gaumen präsentiert er sich opulent fruchtig mit intensiven Noten, wie Pfirsich, Ananas und Spuren von Stachelbeeren. Er besitzt außerdem eine schöne, erfrischende Säure, die verführerisch und zuvorkommend wirkt, sowie einen langen Nachhall am Gaumen. Genießen Sie den Montes Sauvignon Blanc bald - so frisch wie möglich, am besten als Appetizer, wie etwa zu asiatischen Vorspeisen wie Dim Sum oder Lachs mit Limettensabayon.Weingut: Montes Land: ChileRegion: Casablanca ValleyRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 10 - 12°CFassreife: Ausbau in StahltanksLagerfähigkeit: 1 - 2 Jahre ab Jahrgang Weißwein > Chile > Casablanca Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

Purple Angel has an intense purple color with distinctive and delicate hints of chocolate and cigar box aromas. Carmenere and Petit Verdot. The wine is full bodied, with a considerably amount of ripe tannins giving grip and structure to this lovely wine. Mouth filling with a very long finish. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Spectator.
