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
After many years of continual drought, the 2020–2021 season began with a winter of considerable rainfall, concentrated in just a few very rainy days. Spring had some rare touches of frost, that luckily did not affect production. The vineyards showed very good vegetative expression and demonstrated flawless fruit set. The summer season was cooler than expected, with a long, drawn-out ripening process. Ripening had barely finished when there was significant rain across almost the entire wine-growing area of Chile. This had different effects depending on the local intensity of the rain. In the coastal area, winemakers had to remove fruit and leaves in order to increase ventilation and light for the bunches, ensuring the health of the grapes through to harvest. In practical terms, this vintage will be remembered for its fresh white wines, with low alcohol but intense aromatic expression, vibrant natural acidity, and excellent ageing potential.
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.
