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 86/100 with the following review:

A Chilean Sauvignon Blanc boasting mild aromas with zesty lemongrass notes and high mouthwatering acidity. It's light bodied, a touch too thin for my taste, and super easy drinking. Tasted March 2017 by @somssosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Wow! Great value and tasty. The 2016 vintage is well-balanced and offers a bright, crisp and refreshing light experience on the palate. Gooseberries, Tomato leaf, citrus zest. Enjoy with patio season, chicken summer salads. Tasted March 2017. 86 points. Exceptional value.

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