Montes 2010 Sauvignon Blanc

Montes 2010 Sauvignon Blanc “Leyda Vineyard”

Price: Around $12

Rating: ★★★½☆

Color: Pale Yellow

Nose: Granny smith apples and citrus fruit

Taste: Thin and refreshing in body. Zesty with a good acidity particularly on the finish.

Summary: It was beginning to feel like summer in Los Angeles about two weeks ago when I tasted this. Not so much today. I was looking forward to picking up more refreshing summer wines from Chile. Guess I’m gonna have to wait a few weeks or turn up the heater.

Speaking of summer, this is a good one for a warmer day. Good flavor laced with that nice mineral character that I love in some Sauvignon Blanc wines.

Plays great with pool side appetizers or any seafood you can think of.

Originates from Chile’s Leyda valley.
