External Reviews for Montgras Chardonnay Colchagua Valley Reserva
/ Pleasant scents of green apple and bee pollen. Tingly flavors of just-sliced pear and honey. Sweet finish notable for its crispness.
/ A softly textured, full bodied wine, with moderate richness, some complexity, & a medium long finish, tasting of pineapple, roasted nut, lemon peel, & apple. Great value.
/ Snappy and nice, with a touch of mineral. Otherwise it's all about ripe apple and pear up front and citrus on the back palate and finish. Zesty and clean, with the mildest amount of honeyed sweetness.
Deep straw gold. Sweet aromas of pear and pineapple mingle with hints of vanilla. Richly structured, this elegant Chardonnay is well balanced and concludes with a creamy, lingering finish.
/ Light yellow. Smoky peach and melon aromas are clean and incisive. Vaguely sweet melon and pit fruit flavors are gently supported by tangy citrus zest, finishing with good sappy length. I like the lack of oakiness here.
Chardonnay Reserva 2007 - Sante/ Light to medium bodied with notes of citrus and tropical flowers; crisp and refreshing with a short to medium finish. Seared scallops.
Chardonnay 2009 - 88 points, International Wine Cellar/ Light gold. Shy aromas of nectarine and nutmeg are complicated by a leesy element. Juicy and fine-grained, with a silky texture to the pitfruit spice flavors. A very nicely balanced but reticent chardonnay with well integrated acidity and a dry, nervy finish.
