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!

Viña Errazuriz:
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.

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

i don't drink a lot of whites, but i like the chilean sauvignon blancs for a nice value when i do. this was a nice refreshing wine at a reasonable price point. citrusy, creamy, and a little herby.

Clear; low intensity; pale straw core to watery rim; moderate- viscosity. Healthy; moderate++ intensity; low development; grapefruit, gooseberry, grass. Dry; high acidity; 0 tannin; light body; moderate alcohol; grapefruit on palate; high intensity; moderate finish. This wine was aged "sur lie" for 2 months giving it a slightly creamy consistency on the palate. My preconceptions of what Sauvignon Blanc "is" stopped me from catching that. No assumptions!!!

Light, with slightly overpowering hints of citrus. Would recommend giving it a try if you find it under $10. Not a repeat for me.

Blasses Gelb mit grünlichen Reflexen. Knackig-frisches Bouquet von frisch aufgeschnittenen Pampelmusen, Litschi und delikaten Holunderblüten. Erfrischend auch der Gaumen, jetzt auch Ananas und Golden Delicous-Aromen zeigend, sehr aromatisch – der perfekte Wein zum Aperitiv.

Goldgelbe Farbe. Gelbe Rosinen und Dörraprikosen in der duftigen Nase, auch eine Spur Zitronengras und Ingwer, die Frische ausdrücken. Gute Fruchtsüsse im Gaumen, geschmeidig und sanft fliessend; wiederum getrocknete Früchte, auch Ananas; eine dezente Säure stützt die reife Aromatik, Honignoten im anhaltenden Abgang.
