2019 Casablanca Chardonnay, Montes Alpha

Casablanca, ChileVintage: 2019

This wine is bright golden-yellow in colour. The elegant nose offers aromas of tropical fruit such as pineapple, banana and ripe mango, while notes of apricots and pears round out the fruity profile. The French oak also complements the aromatic profile with elegant and well-integrated notes of hazelnut and vanilla. Natural acidity and a generous body mean that this wine invites another glass.

The vineyards for this wine are in the Casablanca region, where cool breezes and proximity to the Pacific Ocean produce ideal conditions for the Chardonnay to ripen slowly and fully. The sites are irrigated via a sustainable system, pioneered by Aurelio and his team, which allows for extremely precise and minimal irrigation. The varied sandy and loam soils lend this wine tremendous complexity. The main clones used are Dijon 76 and Clone 95, the former contributing tropical fruit and citrus, and the latter lending depth and producing exceptionally concentrated grapes

Description

Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions.  The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1987, broke the mould for premium wines in Chile. It was a modern expression of a classic grape which illustrated that Chile could produce wines that stood shoulder to shoulder with their competitors around the world.

Since then, Alpha has gone from being a single wine to being the core range in the Montes portfolio. The grapes and sites are carefully selected each year in order to ensure varietal integrity and complexity. Viticulture is hands-on and individual rather than mechanical and industrial. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sites are irrigated via a ‘Sustainable Dry Farmed’ system, developed by Aurelio and his team, which allows for extremely precise and minimal irrigation, reducing their water footprint by 65%. This approach reduced yields and resulted in smaller bunches and berries, which in turn resulted in wines with deeper colour and more depth, flavour and structure.
