Winemaker's Notes:

The Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc is extraordinarily fruity. The concentrated Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors combine ripe melon, peach and apricot jam with background herbal notes. A hint of lemon zest brightens the bouquet, and luxurious honey suckle contributes to the rich, complex perfume. Good acidity balances the velvety sweetness on the palate and provides a clean, bright finish. The fresh, lively fruit characteristics of this wine should develop into exquisite candied fruit flavors with several years in the bottle.

Alcohol: 11.1% by volume

About Errazuriz:

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded ViƱa Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, north of Santiago. This valley has cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes--ideal for growing grapes. Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant, Eduardo Chadwick--the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernization of the winemaking technology at this historic estate while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines, dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality.
