Montes Classic Chardonnay
The vineyards that produce our Montes Classic Chardonnay are located in Colchagua, Curicó and Maule, all of which are in the Central Valley. The different conditions of these locations express their character in this wine, each one bringing its own contribution.
All of the vines are VSP-trained (vertical shoot positioned) and drip-irrigated, (yielding no more than 11,500 kg/hectare), which allows us to obtain the desired quality and reach harvest with very healthy and evenly ripened grapes.
