Winemaker Notes

Very distinguished golden color. The nose offers outstanding notes of ripe tropical fruits, "golden berries," bananas, peaches, apricots and grapefruit, along with the asparagus notes that are characteristic of Chardonnay from Casablanca. Its 10 months in contact with French oak also confers elegant notes of toast and vanilla and heightens the lactic notes of butter and toffee. The palate is fresh with pleasing acidity, medium volume, and a long and very pleasing finish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
A rich and flavorful chardonnay with hints of vanilla and sliced cooked apple. Full body, plenty of fruit and hints of toasted oak. Only about 40% new oak and 20% malo - this gives it a fascinating brightness and richness.

Montes Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon Vines Winery Image

With the release of the first Montes Alpha wine back in 1988, Montes became one of the first premium wineries of Chile. Their premise, a clear belief that Chile had an untapped potential as a producer of quality wines, made them a benchmark for other wineries to follow. Its original four partners' total involvement and the continuous help of the angels that decorate their labels was key to their success. Two decades later, Montes is the fifth most important winery of Chile where Aurelio Montes continues leading the winemaking area with the same passion as the first day. Hard work and total focus on quality has led Montes to be one of the most successful and respected quality-driven wineries in Chile as they continue pioneering and breaking new grounds in wine.

A region that has become synonymous with some of the best whites of Chile, the Casablanca Valley is full of dozens of bodegas who either grow fruit here or come from outside to source from local growers for their own white wine programs. The valley runs from east to west, which means that its westernmost vineyards receive the most cooling influence from the reliable afternoon sea breezes. The soils also tend to be heavier in clay in the west, whereas the eastern end of the valley is warmer and its soils are predominantly granitic. Sauvignon blanc thrives here, Chardonnay does well and Pinot noir is not uncommon.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
