Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sauvignon Blanc features delicate aromas of fresh pear, lemon peel, and a hint of red pepper. On the palate, lemon, green apple and fresh pear flavors predominate. Background notes of freshly cut grass continue through the clean finish. To enjoy the fresh fruit characters, we recommend consuming within two years of vintage.

Alcohol: 13.1% 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.
