harvest note

The 2018–19 season began with a mild winter and moderate rainfall, followed by a cool, rainy spring that allowed Montes to begin irrigating later in the season. Montes was able to store more water than expected for the summer months. Towards December the weather stabilised, reaching normal maximum temperatures for that time of the year, with 12ºC the minimum and close to 28ºC the maximum. The warm temperatures stayed around in January and continued through February, but they gave way to a chillier March, with cool mornings and evenings, which helped maintain the natural acidity of the white varieties, while also helping to protect their aromas. No rain fell during ripening or harvest, which resulted in good phytosanitary conditions and excellent physical-chemical values.

tasting note

Brilliant pale yellow in colour with glints of green. The intense and cheerful nose offers aromas of fresh citrus, like lime and pink grapefruit, accompanied by notes of pineapple and fresh white peach. A faint greenness in the background is evidence of its coastal origins. The palate has a naturally well-balanced acidity; it’s crunchy but with a rounded sensation on the midpalate. The wine is fresh and entertaining with a long finish that is very much in line with its expression on the nose.

food pairing

Highly recommended with sushi, Cesar salad, ceviche, garlic shrimp, grilled Mahi-Mahi, pasta primavera, seafood chowder and lemon chicken.
