Errazuriz Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Aconcagua Valley 13% 75cl
On the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc displays citrus aromas, of lime and tangerine. The palate features aromas of mandarin, tropical fruits and herbal notes. A wine with a refreshing acidity, great depth and persistence.
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 metres above sea level. Gentle Pacific breezes and morning fog make these vineyards ideal for producing refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.
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.
Grapes were picked by hand and taken to the winery where they were destemmed, crushed and pressed. The must was lightly clarified and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 12-14° C. Fermentation took between 15 to 20 days, and the resulting wine was then separated in different lots that stayed in touch with their lees during three months to intensify its distinctive fruit character and develop a nice texture. Once the final blend was finished, it was stabilized and softly filtered prior to bottling.
