The colour of the Montes Reserva Chardonnay is in a brilliant light gold with greenish reflections in the glass.
The bouquet delights the nose with an exotic fruit composition of ripe mangoes, fresh bananas and juicy peaches. The aromas of the nose are accompanied by the finest wood nuances and vanilla. On the palate, this Chilean white wine has a wonderfully smooth, full-bodied, almost creamy character, which harmonizes perfectly with the juicy fruit, soft acidity and spiciness.
Vinification of the Chardonnay Reserve of Montes
The Chardonnay grapes for this varietal white wine grow in the Valle de Curicó. Only at optimum ripeness are the grapes harvested and brought to the winery.
After gentle pressing, the must is fermented cool in the steel tank at a controlled temperature. After alcoholic fermentation, 40% of the wine is stored for 6 months in French oak barrels. The other 60% continue to rest in the stainless steel tanks.
Food recommendation for the Montes Reserva Chardonnay
We recommend this dry white wine from Chile with delicate salmon dishes, veal chips or vegetable lasagna.
