Tasting Notes:

Vivacious ruby-red colour. The nose shows first aromas of fresh red berries, such as cherry and raspberry, combined with sweet pastry notes, fresh candied aromas, and a hint of toast. On the palate the wine is lively and fresh, with a rich acidity and juiciness. The smooth tannins, light body, and long finish invite you to enjoy a second glass.

Food Pairing:

Highly recommended with fettuccini Alfredo, soft and creamy soups (mushroom, chicken), veal chops, camembert cheese and mushroom risotto.

Description

Montes Limited Selection Pinot Noir

VINEYARDS
The vineyards that produce the grapes for our Montes Limited Selection Pinot Noir are located in the Casablanca, Leyda, and Zapallar Valleys, subsectors of the Aconcagua Costa wine region. All of the vines are vertically positioned, drip irrigated, and produce yields of 9,000–11,000 kg/hectare. The vineyards show excellent vegetative/reproductive balance,. Therefore, it’s not necessary to adjust the crop load meaning we only do minimal work on the canopy. This also allows us to obtain healthy grapes with good balance at the time of harvest.

All the vineyards are close to the sea — Casablanca is 25 km from the coast, Leyda 9 km, and Zapallar is 7 km inland. This brings tremendous freshness, minerality, and typicity to this cool-climate wine. The soils are granitic, with varying amounts of clay the Coastal Range slopes that lend elegance and creaminess to the wine, showcasing the varietal character and potential of Pinot Noir along the Aconcagua coast.
