Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions.
The Montes Leyda Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from selected vineyards in the Leyda Valley, a subregion of San Antonio Valley. Vineyards in Leyda are located a mere 7km from the coast and the resultant wines are highly aromatic with racy acidity, minerality and touch of savouriness. All of these characteristics are superb for Sauvignon Blanc. All of the grapes were hand harvested.
Typical aromatics of the Leyda Valley with a blend of fresh pineapple, white peach and passion fruit along with floral and citrusy notes, and a hint of asparagus in the background. The palate is fresh and crisp with an impressive attack. This is a light Sauvignon Blanc with a long, enjoyable finish.
