Product Description

The 2013 Montes Alpha Chardonnay offers outstanding aromas of ripe tropical fruits, golden berries, bananas, peaches, apricots and grapefruit. Its 10 months in contact with French oak also confers elegant notes of toast and vanilla and heightens the notes of butter and toffee. The palate is fresh with pleasing acidity, medium volume, and a long and very pleasing finish. Pair this versatile wine with salmon tartare, lobster, fresh shellfish, ripe cheeses, and with hot dishes such as crab gratin and mildly sauced white meats and pastas.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chardonnay
Appellation: Casablanca Valley, Chile
Aging: 40% of the wine was aged in first- and second-use French oak barrels for 8-10 months

89 Points - Wine Spectator ("Lively and fruity, with flavors of dried peach, kumquat and blood orange. Fresh midpalate, with a lingering finish of flan and roasted pineapple. Distinctive. Drink now through 2017.")

92 Points - 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.")
