Montes Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley Spring Harvest 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Montes Spring Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is the first and freshest of the vintage, where the best possible grapes are harvested early and brought to market early. This wine is greenish in color and very transparent and brilliant. The highly aromatic nose offers notes of citrus, peach, and orange blossom. The palate is tremendously fresh and citrus notes reappear and linger long on the finish. Food Pairing: Highly recommended with sushi, caesar salad, ceviche, shrimp, grilled mahi-mahi, pasta primavera, shellfish soup, or lemon chicken. Alcohol 12.5%. Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 90 points by Wine & Spirits.

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.

Ripe fresh and firm green pepper and lime aromas with notes of pineapple and green apple. In the mouth, explosive lemon and lime flavors with bold and striking acidity, a touch of melon and a green leaf and grassy note running throughout.
