Winemaker's Notes:

A light greenish-yellow color. The elegant nose has standout tropical fruit notes of passion fruit and cherimoya, while the palate is very refreshing, with a sharp acidity from its tropical character complemented by touches of tomato leaf and herbs, reflecting the good balance between this variety's fruit and herbal qualities. Medium-bodied with 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.
