Outer Limits Zapallar Coast Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

The vineyards that produce the grapes for our Montes Outer Limits Sauvignon Blanc are located 7 km. from the Pacic coast, near the seaside resort of Zapallar. They are the only vineyards in the Zapallar Denomination of Origin, which is the most coastal zone of the Aconcagua Region. The soils in this area are high in clay. The vines correspond to French clones 242 and 107, and American clone 1, and are double Guyot-trained in vineyards of varying exposures and orientations. The semi-arid steppe climate here is drier compared to other coastal areas of Chile. Furthermore, because this is one of the narrowest parts of the country, the Coastal Range of mountains and the Andes have a signicant inuence.

The wine presents a pristine straw-yellow colour with glints of green. The intensely expressive nose is elegant, with notes of fresh white and yellow fruit like passionfruit, white peach, guava, and yellow grapefruit. There are also subtle notes of owers and boxwood. The wine is fresh on the palate and light bodied, with vibrant acidity and a long nish.
