Montes Late Harvest - White Wine
Producer Notes 2014

Grape Variety
100% Gewürztraminer.

Vinification
The grapes are hand picked onto 8 kg-trays and taken to the cellar, where they are emptied directly into the presses.The must obtained is statically decanted in a tank for approximately 24 hours at 10ºC (50ºF) to separate the larger particles. The clean juice is then transferred to another tank for fermentation. The process begins by inoculating the must with selected cereviciae yeast. Fermentation takes place at approximately 14ºC (57ºF) and lasts for the number of days needed to obtain approximately 100 gr/l of residual sugar and alcohol levels around 12º v/v. At that point the wine is submitted to extreme cold (-2º to -4ºC / 28º–25ºF) to completely stop the yeast from acting on the remaining sugar. The yeasts are then decanted out, leaving the clean wine, which is then protein and tartaric stabilized to ensure the it remains stable and healthy in the bottle and for optimal visual appearance. The wine is finally filtered through sterile membranes prior to bottling for greater microbiological safety and to conserve its sensorial characteristics.

Tasting Notes
Strikingly intense golden yellow in color with a captivatingly intense nose featuring sweet notes of honey, quince paste, and honey suckle over an exquisite backdrop of chamomile that lends complexity to its character. The palate is voluminous and very smooth, with a good balance between acidity and sweetness and flavors that echo the nose on the lingering finish. Serve between 10º – 12ºC.
The honeyed flavors of this wine pair to perfection with blue cheeses, fruit flans, tarts, pumpkin pie, crème brûlée, and apple crisp.
