Errazuriz was founded in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago, and at the foot of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the seven summits of the world. Recognizing that this valley was ideal for growing grapes, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, Don Maximiano Errazuriz sent for the finest clones from France, and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition lives on with Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of his family to lead this exceptional estate. Eduardo’s work has been colossal, bringing Errazuriz into a new era where it is acknowledged as a producer of world-class wines, and opened eyes around the globe as to Chile’s incredible and diverse sites. As an estate winery, Errazuriz strives to produce the finest wines through meticulous attention to every stage of viticulture and vinification, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion for wine that has made Errazuriz such an internationally respected producer of quality wines. Check us out at www.errazuriz.com Read less

Smells like cider and is crisp.

Tropical fruits and grassy aromas, lots of melon and a hint of citrus on the nose. Palate is nice and refreshing, pretty light bodied, tangerine and grapefruit flavors and just a hint of cream.

The nose showed lemon with fresh cut grass, minerals and a bit of butteriness. On the palate, this was mouth-filling with sour grapefruit, lime, minerals, and green apple. The finish was long with sour patch citrus fruits. Awesome value too.

I found the nose to have a flax or grainy scent with vegetal tones of green pepper. Very herbaceous. Grassy. Flavor follows suit in being very herb driven with hints of pear and again grainy tones. Some slight grapefruit and hints of gooseberry and even some slight mint or perhaps basil flavors. Not really my style.

Vibrant and fruity bouquet filled with citrus (orange). Acidity I would love to try with Thai food or any spicy seafood.

Pale yellow. Vibrant lemon and orange aromas are complemented by suave floral and herbal nuances. Shows sweeter apple and melon character on the palate, with dusty citrus zest and quinine adding cut and grip. Nicely plump and juicy wine with good finishing lift and tangy length.

Bang! One sniff of this wine and you are floating in those distinct, semisharp aromas that are Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. There's sea air, nettle and citrus galore, and then flavors of gooseberry, green fruit and grapefruit. It's fresh and forward, with angularity and strong varietal character.

The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Aconcagua Costa, from a cooler terroir, offers aromas of fresh herbs, gooseberry, and lemon-lime. More concentrated, with superior depth and length, it is a great value in intensely flavored Sauvignon.

Light yellow. Pungent aromas of peach pit, lime zest and herbs, with a strong undercurrent of white pepper. Racy and pure, offering bright citrus flavors and a deeper orchard and pit fruit quality. The pepper note echoes on the firm, dry finish. I like this wine's Old World restraint.

Scents of herbs and fresh-cut grass appear in the forefront, while flavors of tart white fruit deepen and linger in the background. This is juicy and full of vitality, a sauvignon made for ceviche.

The aromatics aren’t as exaggerated as many a Chilean example, but the palate is tangy, mineral-infused and very persistent. Classy stuff from the newly developed cool Aconcagua coast area. Drink: 2011. Alc: 13.5%.


External Review

Snappy, crisp and green on the nose, but well balanced and showing the good side of Chilean SB, which is oceanic, fresh, green and citrusy. Flavors of lime, grapefruit and passion fruit are true, while the finish is fruity at first before breaking up.
