Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Aconcagua Costa, Valle de Aconcagua, Region de Aconcagua, ChileThis is first class sauvignon and has been since it was first launched. The vines, grown at the Manzanar Vineyard, Aconcagua Costa are a mere 12 kilometers from the cool Pacific Ocean. Very little pre-maceration has led to a beautifully structured, aromatic white wine that dances a herbal, mineral, guava, passion fruit ballet on the palate yet again. This wine was made for oysters even if it can’t make the cut in local private wine shops – the Chilean bias is my guess, but it does reside on the reserve wine list at Earls, across Canada, at a very modest price.
