Montes Alpha Chardonnay DO

Tasted 20/08/12. Cork closure. Last tasted 12/04/11. 14% ABV, ca. £13 UK retail (e.g. Majestic). This is the last of the half case I had of this. Four years old now and needs to be drunk up. Still toffee apple and toasty oak on the nose, deep golden colour. Rich and buttery on the palate. Great balance with acid finish now fading. Fantastic vfm. 16.5 / 20. From 2011. Drinking window 2 -3 years, so the '09's and 10's should be drunk soon. I lovely wine from my favourite Chilean winery. Drinking it now with sea bream roasted with garlic and rosemary!
