Montelìg is the fusion of "monte" which is Spanish for mountain and "lìg" which is the native pre-Inca indian language for light. The mountains and the light are the most striking and moving elements of the Chilean landscape. The velvety, refined texture of the light against the aristochratic mountains of Panquehue are evoqued beautifully by Viña von Siebenthal's premium wine Montelìg. Velvety start which denotes great concentration of aromas and a very flavoursome and complex character. The flavour is consistent, with good body, harmonious and with a large, fresh and elegant ending.
