Natalie's Score: 89/100

The winery owns 1085 hectares or 2681 acres of land of which 75% is untouched land. Cool nights and gentle breezes temper the sun's heat. A terrific, amazing wine for the money. A grassy, herbal, fresh, zesty Chilean white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Very well priced for the quality. These grapes are grown in one of the country's cool climate regions. Errazuriz owns 50% of this winery. Aromas of tomato leaf and lime zest on the finish. Pair with fresh seafood.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: shellfish, grilled chicken or pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Floral, tropical, juicy and super inexpensive. Prominent notes include zesty fresh herbs, lime zest, passion fruit and white grapefruit. This Chilean best buy is dry, crisp and light bodied. Enjoy on a hot hot hot summer patio. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Wow. A superb-value dry Chilean Sauvignon Blanc for Sauvignon Blanc lovers. Medium finish with persistence of herbaceous notes, kafir lime leaf, lime zest, white grapefruit. Tart and dry, medium acidity, balanced. Drinking well now. Paired well with banana leaf wrapped white fish filet and zesty rice. Tasted great as well on its own. Tasted Jan 2016. Rated 88/100. Great value.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
