MONTES LIMITED SELECTION
A crisp and fruity wine. Light yellow-green color; bright and clear. The aroma shows pure and intense Sauvignon Blanc character, showing the potential of its cold-zone origin in coastal Leyda Valley, where the morning fogs and low temperatures prolong the hanging period.

Wine and Food Attributes
Racy acidity, jalapeño, grapefruit and peach.
Montes Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc has a much stronger acidity which will be best with rich foods still in a lighter style preparation, sweet shell fish like lobster and shrimp will show off the fruit and have enough richness to cut the acidity in the wine. Raw oysters will bring out the mineral richness in the wine.
