MONTES "Alpha" Chardonnay 2016

(Aconcagua Costa, Chile) $21

If you like plush, tropical-tasting chardonnays, you must taste this fantastic one from Montes, one of Chile’s top innovative wineries. Exuberantly packed with pineapple, melon, coconut, lime, and yellow plum flavors, it also boasts a fresh minerally saltiness, the result of the vineyard’s location close to the sea. This is a crowd pleaser of a chardonnay and priced accordingly. Like all Montes wines, there’s an angel on the label—a tribute to one of the winery’s partners, a car fanatic, who despite dangerous driving habits has always walked away from accidents without a scratch.
