Wine tasting notes

Brilliant pale yellow in colour with glints of green. The intense and cheerful nose offers aromas of fresh citrus, like lime and pink grapefruit, accompanied by notes of pineapple and fresh white peach. A faint greenness in the background is evidence of its coastal origins. The palate has a naturally well-balanced acidity; it’s crunchy but with a rounded sensation on the midpalate. The wine is fresh and entertaining with a long finish that is very much in line with its expression on the nose.

Food matching

Highly recommended with sushi, Cesar salad, ceviche, garlic shrimp, grilled Mahi-Mahi, pasta primavera, seafood chowder and lemon chicken.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 88 pts

June 2014 - Luis Gutierrez - The 2013 Montes Classic Series Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Casablanca, about 30 kilometers from the sea in the Valparaiso zone on sandy soils that produce light, elegant wines. This 2013 has a very clean aroma with notes of gooseberry and cut grass, with nerve, good freshness and a mineral feeling, flowery and citric. Drink now.


Wine Spectator (2014) - 87 pts

Web Only 2015 - A grassy-tasting white, with flavors of ripe melon and citrus. Sea salt and peppery notes emerge on the crisp finish.


Wine Enthusiast (2011) - 87 pts

Varietally and regionally correct, with green, grassy, punchy aromas of citrus, white pepper and jalapeño. This is prickly in the mouth, with lively acidity and flavors of lime, scallion, green apple and bell pepper. It finishes with cut and juicy acids. — M.S. (9/1/2012)
