Made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from grapes harvested in Chile's Casablanca and Curico Valleys, this is clean, fresh and an absolute pleasure to drink. Hints of herbs and lemons in the nose lead to a palate of melons, citrus and guava. Aged in 100% stainless steel, the first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from Montes was 1999. A perfect aperitif wine or with zingy seafood dishes and/or salads. Winemaker/owner Aurelio Montes was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Spectator on two seperate occasions. He is completely dedicated to producing the finest wines that Chile has to offer, from everyday offerings such as the Classic Series wines, to high end wines like Purple Angel and Alpha M.

Wine EnthusiastCrisp aromas of yellow bell pepper and citrus go mild on the pyrazines. A juicy but basic palate plays up the peppery side of this grape, while fresh lettuce and arugula notes play out on a thin finish.
