More information

The vines for the complex, varietal Montes Alpha Special Cuvée Chardonnay grow in the region of Aconcagua Costa.

In the glass, this wine has a deep yellow color with shiny golden highlights. The excellent bouquet reveals intense notes of tropical fruits - it dominates notes of pineapple and banana. This is accompanied by white-fleshy peaches with fine mineral notes. Thanks to the barrel extension, the aroma is underlined by hints of hazelnuts and vanilla. On the palate, this Chilean white wine convinces with its fresh character, which is surrounded by a voluminous body. The very pleasant acidity accompanies in the wonderfully persistent reverberation. 

Vinification of the Chardonnay Special Cuvée Montes Alpha


early February to early April, the Chardonnay grapes are harvested manually in 300kg containers in the early morning. Arriving in the wine cellar, the harvested material is destemmed, pressed and cold mashed for several hours. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13 to 14 degrees Celsius for 25 days. 

After the fermentation process has been completed, 40% of this wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. 60% of this white wine remains in the stainless steel tanks.
