Vina Montes Unoaked Sauvignon Blanc Case Of 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

90-91 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): ...evinces the smoky, fusil, chalky, iodine-like Kimmeridgian aspects as well as the succulent kiwi and grapefruit in spades, and with an extra measure of sheer juiciness and saliva-stimulating salinity that add to the persistence and next-sip inducement of the finish. Lees-enhanced richness of texture offers something of a platform for showing off the vintage-atypical levity, animation, and minerality that characterize this cuvee of only 13.2% alcohol -- a whisker lower, amazingly, than the corresponding 2010. It should prove profoundly delightful for at least half a dozen years, not to mention it is an excellent value. (Jun 2012)

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.

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.
