Sauvignon Blanc Estate Errázuriz 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Leuchtendes strohgelb. Herrliche Fruchtintensität, frische Ananas und reife Grapefruits. Verschwenderische Fruchtaromen und noble Mineralik im saftigen Gaumen. Frisches Finale mit Noten von Mandelblüten. Ein ganz grosser Sauvignon-Wert!

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.

beautiful golden hue, big tropical aroma, nice acidity upfront and evens out -- clean and light

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.

Pungent but green up front, with a mix of citric and vegetal aromas that includes lime, peas and canned beans. Feels good and bright, with zesty acidity propelling passion fruit, grapefruit and bell pepper flavors. Finishes both green and crisp, with a blend of tropical and cool-climate character.

Green-tinged straw. High-pitched aromas of grapefruit pith, lime and chalk, with a hint of jasmine. Light-bodied, dry and taut, offering bright citrus zest flavors and a deeper pear skin quality. This clean, focused, lithe sauvignon blanc finishes with good energy and spicy cut.

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%.

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.

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.

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.
