Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Aconcagua Costa, Valle de Aconcagua, Region de Aconcagua, ChileTasted several times. The 2010 comes off five-year old vines grown at the Manzanar Vineyard, Aconcagua Costa a mere 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Errazuriz has 80 hectares planted to the sauvignon blanc clones 1, 107, 376 and 242 and all combine to shape the wines vibrant style. Very little pre-maceration has led to a beautifully structured, aromatic white wine that dances a herbal, mineral, passion fruit ballet on the palate. It was made for oysters. A stunning new future for Errazuriz. Fabulous restaurant wine. Currently on the reserve wine list at Earls at a very modest price.Tasted: 10 October 2011Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.00 speculative listing - Philippe Dandurand SK 25.00 Producer: ViƱa ErrazurizDistributors: Dandurand
