Montes Sauvignon Blanc Classic Series 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker on the 03- Bramare is a tribute to the Marchiori family and their Italian heritage. Bramare is an Italian word meaning to yearn for and represents Vina CobosGs middle tier of wines. Under the Bramare label, Vina Cobos showcases the Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay varietals. From slightly younger yet well-established blocks of the Marchiori Vineyard, the Bramare wines exhibit structure, concentration and complexity.

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.

This could be Chilersquo;s most expressive, interesting white Sauvignon. Itrsquo;s got typical prickly pineapple, passion fruit, scallion and pepper notes, and pure citrus flavors backing it all up. The mouthfeel is zesty and spirited, but therersquo;s natural roundness, too. Some licorice adds complexity to the finish.

Flavors of bright citrus and passion fruit, adorned by fresh green beans and a touch of pepper, define this very refreshing sauvignon blanc. Savor it with bacon-wrapped scallops.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged in steel. Very crisp, bright and perfectly zingy. Loads of green apples and citrus zest.

The Ste.-Croix-de-Mont appellation is considered the finest of the trio of sweet wines (with Loupiac and Cadillac) across the Garonne River from Sauternes. This wine is botrytis-affected in a somewhat lighter style than traditional Sauternes.
