Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are hand-harvested, cold-fermented and "aged sur-lie" for up to three months in French oak barrels for complexity.

A pale yellow color with light tones of green. Tropical fruit notes such as chirimoya stand out on the nose, accompanied by touches of green apple, tomato leaf, and herbs, indicating good balance between this variety's fruit and herbal aspects. Refreshing on the palate with a sharp acidity and medium body that leads to a persistent, enjoyable aftertaste.

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.
