Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Aconcagua Costa, Valle de Aconcagua, Region de Aconcagua, ChileThis wine has impressed me from the day it was launched. It’s first class Chilean sauvignon, and should be widely available in BC, but for some reason it’s off the radar of retailers and restaurants. The vines are grown at the Manzanar Vineyard, Aconcagua Costa, only 12 kilometers from the cool Pacific Ocean. Very little pre-maceration has led to a beautifully structured, aromatic, complex white wine that dances across the palate with herbal, mineral, guava, passion fruit flavours. Delicacy and tension is the story. This wine was made for oysters. Even if it can’t make the cut in local private wine shops (Chilean bias is my guess), it does reside on the reserve wine list at Earls across Canada, at a very modest price. Delicious.
