Montgras Handcrafted Rare Riesling is a light-bodied white wine with a pleasant balance of floral, citrus, and acidity. Its pale yellow hue with greenish hues gives it an elegant look. Its long finish of aromas and flavours make it a great choice to pair with starters such as cheeses, charcuterie and foie gras, as well as Thai and other oriental cuisines.

Vineyard and Winery
From VSP trained vineyards on gentle slopes on the way to Quitralman. The amazing topography here is dominated by undulating slopes and plains dissected by deep ravines with intermittent water courses. Red clay soils formed from the evolution of glacial sediments and alluvial material. The drought affected most grape producers, especially in the dry farmed areas, where yields were down. There was frost in November 2019, but it did not have much impact on this variety, which tends to bud later. The summer was warm with lower thermal amplitude and cooler days than in other years. The overall quality of this Riesling never fails to surprise us with its pronounced and characteristic aromatic intensity and racy acidity. It makes us feel that we have successfully risen to the challenge of expressing this variety in Chile
The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the free run juice was separated. The must was fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks. It was kept over its lees for five months. The wine had no oak contact prior to bottling. 6,000 bottles produced.
