Montes, Outer Limits, Zapallar 2017
Great example from the granite and clay soils of the coastal part of Aconcagua, a stone’s throw from the Pacific. An overt and expressive wine displaying an array of tropical flavours, gooseberry, asparagus, nettles and herbs. invigorating and refreshing in all its aspects. 92 Drink 2018-2020
