Winemaker's Notes:

Light yellow in color, this Sauvignon Blanc presents tremendous aromatic intensity and features citrusy lime and grapefruit notes along edged with an herbaceous side that recalls green chilli pepper, all framed by a veil of minerality that is characteristic of the vineyard terroir. The palate has body and softness with refreshing acidity and a fresh, juicy sensation on the long finish.

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.
