Montes Alpha Chardonnay 750ml - 12002
It was in 1987 when two visionaries partners, Aurelio Montes and Douglas Murray, wanted to realize their dreams of producing wines of a quality far superior to the one that was being produced in Chile at that time. They added in 1988 the other two original partners, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, giving birth to Viña Montes. Colchagua is one of the Chilean wine valleys with the most international prestige, in which Viña Montes was a pioneer in establishing. This valley is located in the central zone of Chile, less than two hours driving from its capital, Santiago. Montes’ vineyards are in Apalta and Marchigüe, a unique location where the mild sun exposure and influence from the Pacific make for balanced ripeness. The intense, complex nose offers tropical fruit aromas such as pineapple, banana, and ripe mango, while pleasing notes of peaches and pears round out the fruity profile. Smooth attack on the palate with perfectly balanced acidity, resulting in a very fresh wine that also has generous volume. This Alpha Chardonnay ends with a long and elegant finish that invites another glass. You cant go wrong with steamed lobster, sautéed shrimp, or penne pasta with creamy sauce. Match with a soft and creamy Brie cheese .
