Wine tasting notes

The wine is pale yellow in colour with green hues. On the nose, there are fresh aromas of citrus and tropical fruits such as lemon, passion fruit, pineapple and mango. The palate is fresh and fruity with vibrant acidity.

Food matching

An excellent aperitif and party wine, Chilean Sauvignon Blancs such as this are not only versatile but, like Sauvignon Blancs in general, are also a gift when it comes to matching otherwise challenging ingredients such as asparagus and smoked foods. This wine can stand up to vinegar, and so is excellent with all kinds of salads, but it can also take the heat, making it a good match for lighter Thai dishes. You can't go wrong pairing it with fish and shellfish, but avoid creamy sauces and anything too salty.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 89 pts

Wine Advocate # 199. Feb 2012. Reviewer : Jay Miller. The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Limited Selection was also fermented and raised in stainless steel. Made from Leyda fruit, it was produced from significantly lower yields than the Classic Series cuvee which may account for its impressive concentration and laser-like focus. Notions of thyme, stony minerals, spring flowers, and gooseberry lead to a racy, lively, lengthy Sauvignon. It is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 12-18 months.Aurelio Montes has a well-earned reputation as one of Chile?s foremost vignerons. The Montes wines offer great value at the lower end of the spectrum and set the bar for what can be achieved in Chile at the higher end.


Wine Spectator (2014) - 89 pts

April 2015 - Exuberantly fruity, with lively flavors of melon, apricot and tropical fruits, balanced by lemongrass and savory herbal notes. The clean finish shows plenty of fresh acidity.


Wine Enthusiast (2011) - 88 pts

Nice on the nose, with tropical aromas, ocean-based saline and mild green-fruit notes. Feels crisp and cleansing, with tangy flavors of lemon, green apple and underripe pineapple. Lime and green flavors of tarragon and grass drive the finish. — M.S. (6/1/2012)


Decanter (2011) - 3 pts

Restrained mineral, tropical fruit, mandarin, lemon and coriander nose. Crunchy, tangy style with fresh acidity and flinty minerality. Multi-dimensional and long.
