Montes Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Really very attractive on the nose with nicely layered roasted green chiles, a hint of jalapeno, cut grass ands sweet lemon and lime aromas. In the mouth this displays big acids up front supporting fresh and nuanced flavors of grapefruit and guava with some of the green herbal qualities emerging aromatically in the mouth. the texture is medium full bodied but rather seamless with a hint of austerity asserting itself on the backend as this flashes a hint of peach leading a moderately long and well focused finish. 89pts

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

Awesome blend of Cab Sauv and the mythical Carmenere from Chile. Maybe my best value wine ever. Super smooth and complex beyond my descriptive abilities but theres some chocolately/vanilla/butterscotch flavs happening here that made it perfect with the dark chocolate we had on the boat after a sail on the Gulf of Mexico. Cheers!

An absolute adventure of smooth and dark combinations. Something new! Very, very special, has to be learned a bit. Choose it´s place on the tounge with care. Butterscotch. Overripe cherries hiding in a smoky leather darkness. Burnt vanilla. Best value I have bought.

The 2012 Malbec Uco Valley is a 4,000-case cuvee aged nine months in French oak, of which 10% was new. A beautiful, full-bodied, seriously endowed Malbec, it possesses a dense purple color along with a sweet bouquet of blueberry and black raspberry fruit interwoven with camphor, licorice and spring flowers as well as a touch of oak. This wonderfully endowed, full-bodied, classic Argentina Malbec should drink nicely for 5–6 years.

This red offers forward black plum, licorice and cedar notes. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

On the palate citrus fruits like pink grapefruit and tropical fruits as white peach and passion fruit are accompanied by the floral notes that characterize this wine, showcasing its cool Casablanca climate origin, revealing an aromatic and fresh wine.

WE 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Very powerful. To the palate it is refreshingly crisp, sparkling, soft and sumptuous, showing great complexity of tropical fruits with citric accents. Its high acidity and low pH contribute to the impressive overall freshness and high minerality.

Fresh, crisp and intense. Luscious floral aromas and zesty acidity combine in a delicious, refreshing wine.

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
