  • Suitable for vegetarians
  • Our Montes Chardonnay is made with a selection of grapes that ripened slowly in the cold mornings of the coastal Aconcagua Viticulture Region to produce fresh wines with tremendous fruit expression.
  • A portion of this Chardonnay has been aged in a combination of new and old French oak barrels to give complexity but also retain the fruit expression of the Chardonnay. The wine is pale gold in colour with aromas of tropical fruit, vanilla and apricots. On the palate this medium bodied wine is balanced by fresh acidity and has an elegant and persistent finish.

Vinification Details

  • A portion of the grapes were put into tank and cold soaked at 10°c for four hours to enhance the aromatics. The remainder of the grapes were gently crushed, settled and then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 15-17 days. 15% of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation to give richness to the wine and 35% of the blend was aged in French oak barrels (25% new, the rest second fill) for eight months

History

  • 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. Montes own 800 hectares of vineyards in Apalta and Marchigue located in Colchaugua Valley as well a single vineyard Zapallar, in the coastal Aconcagua Valley. By this, they are able to retain full control of everything that is planted, cultivated and picked.

Regional Information

  • The Chardonnay grapes come from Aconcagua region. Aconcagua's Mediterranean climate is a result of the vines being shielded from the Pacific Ocean by the Coastal Range. Chardonnay from Aconcagua is riper in comparison to the cooler climate regions in Chile, but is still able to retain freshness due to cool nights. All grapes were hand harvested.
