Morning wine lovers! A brand new one for us with this one. It was a bit of a surprise for us. Let's have a read about this incredible winery...
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions. We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past three decades. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process. The Outer Limits wines were born out of Aurelio Montes' desire to push Chilean viticulture in a new direction. The 45 hectare Zapallar Vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley was Montes' first venture into the 'outer limits'. Due to the balance and concentration in the Outer Limits wines, they can be enjoyed now or allowed to age for a few years, rewarding with a wonderfully complex bouquet.

A very intense and elegant nose with notes of passion fruit and grapefruit mingled with boxwood, tomato leaf and a line of minerality. The minerality reappears on the palate - it is fresh and crisp with tremendous volume and a very long fruity finish. The delicious acidity makes it very fresh and juicy, which contrasts with its elegance and expression.
Have you ever seen such an amazing tasting note for a Sauvignon Blanc?! It is truly incredible. Come and give it a go! Cheers!
