My first excursion with Montes was with their well-respected and well-loved M, a delicious meritage of red wines. So, it made sense for me to start trying their other releases.

This wine is a blend of sauvignon blanc grapes from the Casablanca Valley (51%) and the Curico Valley.

The bottle says that the aromas and tastes has gooseberry and hints of asparagus, though I can't ever remember tasting gooseberries. The taste, however, is both classic and phenomenal for this type of wine, delivering a superb combination of lemon and lime citrus flavors (it's better than Sprite folks).

Get this wine, and whomever you serve it to will love you.
