The Montes Classic Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are located in the Aconcagua Costa region and planted on granite soils, with a predominance of clay, although some blocks have sandier soils. Most of the vineyards are planted on low to moderate hills, with diverse exposures and different clones. Proximity to the coast promotes freshness while pruning the canopies carefully keeps the fruit covered during the months when the sunlight is most intense. This helps maintain the freshness and varietal expression in the grapes.

Harvest Note
Concentrated winter rains totaling 20 inches provided a important water supply for the vineyards at a level not experienced in more than ten years. Budbreak and fruit set took place as expected, without spring frost, assuring the production of good-quality bunches. Significant rain after ripening created a huge amount of work in the vineyards to increase ventilation and enhance fruit drying. Timely action allowed winemakers to reach harvest with healthy grapes of good quality. Generally speaking, the season was cooler than the previous one, resulting in better color and aroma concentration and fresh wines with great personality.
Tasting Note
Pale yellow with green tones, the wine’s nose is pronounced with aromas of pineapple and white peach. Grapefruit and orange blossom on the palate are underlined by a distinct grassiness. The palate is lively, with vibrant natural acidity, light body, and a long finish.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with salmon ceviche, sea bass with sautéed mushrooms and rice, or fettuccine alfredo.
