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).

    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.

    Nicely focused the grassy ripe citrus '07 Montes Classic Series Sauvignon is picture-perfect; well-balanced in everyway this wine truly delivers; lively aftertaste.

    90 points Robert Parker: `The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Vineyard a more serious effort is an unoaked cuvee with an expressive bouquet of spring flowers citrus and fresh herbs. Light- to medium-bodied it exhibits lively white fruit flavors vibrant acidity and excellent balance. This exceptional value has a pure fruit-filled finish.` A Smart Buy from the Wine Spectator: `Bony and chiseled with lots of lime sweet pea and gooseberry notes framed by mouthwatering acidity. Very fresh with solid length. Drink now.`

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Sauvignon Blanc is a clear, crisp and fruity wine with light yellow-green color, bright and transparent. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Leyda Valley. After fermentation is applied a cold stabilization and then bottling. There is no oak ageing in this wine in order to maintain the freshness and crispiness of the fruit. The nose holds peaches, pineapples and other tropical fruits with citric hints. These are held together with a nice minerality, which makes this wine a fresh and appealing one. The aroma shows its power and super Sauvignon Blanc character, and also shows the full potential of its cold zone origin, with morning fogs, low temperatures and long hanging period.
