Montes Alpha Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc, 2012


montesMontes has a number of wines in the government and private stores in BC, all quite fine in their way.  We’d never seen a limited Sauv Bl, and jumped at the chance.  It was crisp, clean, green, very much like a Marlborough SB.  Totally likeable and no complaints.  It didn’t have quite the bite that many NZ bottles do and none of the subtlety of Sancerre, but if this was in the stores back home I’d jump at buying more.  And more.  Can I get a message to the import reps???

 

Price: In an expensive hotel restaurant $24, so obviously not that much retail.

 

Market Liquidity: Nice find.
