Errazuriz Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2010
Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a vibrant and refreshing dry style with a zingy citrus-fruit character. A pale yellow color with light tones of green. Tropical fruit notes such as cherimoya 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.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vina Errazuriz in 1870 in the Valle de Aconcagua, 62 miles north of the capital city, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers, and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was 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, his descendents strive to build on his legacy, locating ideal vineyard sites, planting new varieties and realizing techniques to capture the Aconcagua Valley's perfect conditions. The Don Maximiano Estate is their premier vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley, where abundant sunshine, clear skies, and cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean create perfectly ripe, balanced wines.
