ERRAZURIZ ESTATE SERIES SAUVIGNON BLANC
Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870. With his great vision for the future and his innovative, pioneering spirit, he planted the first French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley. His initiative and creativity were handed down to future generations and, in just over a century, his descendants consolidated the winery and positioned their wines among the world’s most noteworthy. Here, we invite you to get to know some of the main landmarks that have shaped the history of this family vineyard, currently one of the best examples of successful winemaking in Chile.
The grapes for our Estate Sauvignon Blanc come from selected vineyards that grow close to the Pacific Ocean’s coast in the Aconcagua Region, on rolling hills at an altitude of 100 to 300 meters above sea level. Gentle Pacific breezes and morning fog make these vineyards ideal for producing refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.
As opposed to last year, during this season the climate conditions favoured a higher productivity in the vineyards. Temperatures behaved within the historical frames and the season ended with mild conditions, thus allowing for a very balanced ripeness and harvest, positive in aspects of health, and generous in highly complex flavours.

Consistent with the nose, the palate features aromas of mandarin, tropical fruits and herbal notes. A wine with a refreshing acidity, great depth and persistence.
