Montes

Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Chile / Leyda Valley

The vineyards are located in the Leyda Valley, approximately 9 miles from the Pacific coast on moderately sloping hillsides with granitic soils and a predominance of clay. The vines are planted to a density of 13,727 plants per acre and trained to vertical shoot position. Pruning is aimed at achieving low yields to allow the grapes to ripen a little earlier. The canopies of the vines are kept intact until harvest to preserve a very good level of bunch coverage, which enable the fruit to reach harvest with a very good level of aromas in the skins.

tasting note

Crystalline light greenish-yellow in color. The very expressive nose shows great typicity with fresh aromas of tropical fruits such as passion fruit and guavas. Citrus notes of grapefruit and limes appear on the backdrop over subtle notes of green chilies. The smooth palate offers the rich natural fresh and juicy acidity characteristic of the coastal zone. It has medium volume and subtle sweet sensations that lend an elegant, prolonged finish very much in line with the aromas perceived on the nose.

food pairing

Highly recommended with razor clams Parmesan, salmon ceviche, Chilean rock cod, and shrimp in garlic sauce.
