Description

Experience the captivating allure of Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc, a wine that embodies the unique characteristics of the Aconcagua Costa vineyard and showcases the vibrant flavors of Sauvignon Blanc. This exceptional wine is a testament to the unwavering dedication and expertise of Viña Errázuriz.

The grapes for Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc were sourced from the Aconcagua Costa vineyard, located just 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Planted by Viña Errázuriz in 2005 and 2009, these vineyards benefit from the composition of the soil – a thin layer of loamy texture placed on top of clay and metamorphic rock (slate/schist). This unique soil composition imparts the wines with distinct mineral notes, elevating their complexity and adding a layer of sophistication.

The season presented its share of challenges, with the driest winter in the last 50 years. Despite the intense hydric marathon, the vineyards in the Aconcagua Costa managed to overcome and reach optimal ripeness. Warm temperatures, especially in the spring, were followed by slightly colder months, ultimately resulting in a moderate crop yield. Abundant irrigation in the summer played a crucial role in maintaining the freshness and quality of the vines, ensuring that the grapes reached their full potential.

In the winemaking process, the grapes were meticulously hand-picked in the early morning. To enhance elegance in the palate, a portion of the grapes were whole-cluster pressed. The remaining grapes underwent destemming, crushing, and pressing, allowing for the preservation of their natural acidity. The juice then fermented in stainless steel tanks, capturing and preserving the vibrant flavors and aromas of the grape.

In the glass, Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc exudes a yellow-straw color with enchanting greenish hues. The nose delights with a citric profile, complemented by herbal and green apple notes. On the palate, the wine reveals a dominant citric aroma reminiscent of mandarin, grapefruit, and lemon skin. Fruit aromas of green apple gracefully intertwine with herbal notes, creating a refreshing profile with impeccable balance. With medium-high volume and a fresh and balanced entrance, this Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc delivers a superb persistence and a mineral sensation that lingers on the palate, culminating in an elegant finish.

The Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that exudes freshness, vibrancy, and finesse. With its captivating aromas, crisp acidity, and remarkable balance, it is the perfect companion for a wide range of occasions. From a casual gathering to a sophisticated dinner, this wine will elevate the experience and leave a lasting impression. Indulge in the essence of the Aconcagua Costa vineyard and savor the enchanting flavors of Sauvignon Blanc with this extraordinary wine from Errazuriz.
