Winemaker's Notes:

Light greenish-yellow in color, this is an elegant wine with notes of fresh fruit very nicely complemented by light aromas of toast and yeast. A quick swirl in the glass reveals citrusy floral notes recalling grapefruit and mandarin orange blossoms. The palate offers plenty of fruit with vibrant acidity that lends tremendous freshness that balances perfectly with its sumptuously creamy mouthfeel that results from malolactic fermentation. Medium body and volume accompanies this elegant wine, which promises great cellaring potential.

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.
