|Debbie Ingram - CSW, WSET Level 1 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
2014 was a good vintage, no rain, perfect conditions for growing Sauvigon Blanc in the Aconcauga Valley of Chile. Errazuriz Aconcauga Costa Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and fresh, perfect for the patio with a cheese plate or as an accompaniment to seafood. This wine is fragrant with great acidity and minerality and plenty of citrus and hint of herbaceous notes on the palette. A lovely wine, styled more like a Sancerre than those from the new world. A must try!
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
As the sea shell on the label eludes to, this wine is from the coastal (Costa) region of the Aconcagua valley. Ripe citrus, and guava fruit are layered over slight asparagus and saline minerality. Light, crisp, and refreshing, this elegant Sauvignon Blanc sets the benchmark for this varietal in Chile.
Sip on its own or pair with seafood pasta and soft, pungent cheeses.
Drink now or keep through 2017.
Date tasted: January 2015.

Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870 and he was the first to plant French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley, Chile.
His initiative and creativity were handed down to future generations and, in just over a century, his descendants consolidated the winery and positioned their wines among the worlds most noteworthy.
Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the fifth generation of his family to lead this exceptional estate. An industrial engineer by profession, he joined the administration of Viña Errázuriz after graduating from University. He learned viticulture and winemaking from his father and later studied in Bordeaux.
Celebrating their 145th anniversary this year (2015), the future is looking bright for Errazuriz, even Mr. Robert Parker agrees: “In my opinion, what this estate will produce in the next twenty years will completely surpass the previous twenty years.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc at its best!
Pale yellow and fresh in the glass, it exudes yellow grapefruit zest and crushed gooseberry aromas.
On the palate, it is crispy with a lovely minerallity and citrus notes. Refreshing acidity with a long delightful finish.
Perfect to match oysters or grilled scallops with!
