Montes, Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Leyda Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A sauvignon blanc with weight, flavor and herbal hints that are sauvignon blanc’s calling card.
Pale-intensity lemon-green in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green apple, pear, freshly-cut green grass, blossom and lemon-citrus zest.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied sauvignon blanc has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
Complexity on the midpalate complements the acid structure.
A solid sauvignon blanc that is equally enjoyable by the glass as it is paired with food.
Bottle Note: True to our pioneering spirit and philosophy of always offering the best, Montes has created this absolutely wonderful sauvignon blanc from Leyda Valley, Denomination of Origin close to San Antonio, only 15 kms (9.3 miles) away from the Pacific Ocean and from whose vineyards you can see the sea. Aurelio Montes is convinced that the superb quality coming from this estate surpasses his very high expectations of Leyda Valley. Enjoy!
