A very intense nose, with attractive tropical fruit notes of passionfruit and pink grapefruit mingled with tomato leaf and green chili. A mineral backdrop sets up the palate which is crunchy with juicy and fresh acidity. A subtle saline touch on the finish hints at the coastal origin.
We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past 25 years. The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1987, broke the mould for premium wines in Chile. Since then, Alpha has gone from being a wine to being the core range in the Montes portfolio. The grapes and sites are carefully selected in order to ensure varietal integrity and complexity . Viticulture is hands on and individual rather than mechanical and industrial. The result is a range of… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2016)
The 2016 Outer Limits Sauvignon Blanc is from the newly created coastal appellation Zapallar in the Aconcagua Valley. It provides fresh and salty wines with a clear marine influence, as the vines are some seven kilometers away from the sea. It has pungent aromas, closer to a Sancerre than a wine from New Zealand. It's serious and austere with herbal and citric aromas, very apt for seafood, ending mineral and saline. 24,000 bottles produced.

James Suckling (JS) : 88 Points (2013)
A tangy yet ripe sauvignon with sliced apple and light asparagus. Full-bodied, fresh and clean.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2011)
This is a perfectly nice Sauvignon Blanc from stand-alone vineyards in Zapallar. The nose features a varietal aroma of white pepper and a piquant hint of green. The acid-driven palate bears lime, tangerine and bell pepper flavors. — M.S. (12/1/2012)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2011)
Light yellow. Intense citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by ginger, beeswax and chalky minerals. Taut and focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering juicy orange and pear flavors and a touch of anise. Finishes clean, nervy and long, with resonating spiciness and a subtle herbal quality. -- Josh Raynolds

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2011)
A well-cut and intense white, with racy lemon, lime leaf and pulpy grapefruit notes backed by spirited acidity and a long, savory finish.

Purple Angel showcases the rich flavours typical of Carménère. The addition Petit Verdot gives the wine spice, colour, structure and acidity. Deep ruby red in colour, the wine has alluring red and blackberry notes on the nose. The palate is densely concentrated, with spice, chocolate and mocha which lingers on the finish.
