Montes Outer Limits Zapallar Sauvignon Blanc DO

2014

In a Nutshell

Intense, cooler climate Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

An intense and lively pungent Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of capsicum, lime, grapefruit and hints of asparagus. The palate is wonderfully textured and minerally, with bracing acidity and excellent concentration.

Production Notes

Grapes were cold soaked for 12 hours to extract aromas and then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for two weeks. The wine was kept in contact with its lees to give it some roundness on the palate.
