The aromas of flint and stone are impressive with fresh citrus character. Full body, rich and flavorful with a wonderful finish. Very intense acidity at the finish. Flinty aftertaste. Subtle and captivating.

The early harvested 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Aconcagua Costa comes from the Manzanar vineyard on clay and slate soils. The grapes are picked early in the morning to avoid the heat of the day, destemmed, crushed and pressed ,and the juice is fermented in stainless vats where it was kept in contact with the lees for three months; it didn't see any oak whatsoever. The nose is very expressive, powerful, pungent, herbal, even vegetal with aromas of herbs and bay leaf reaching seaweed -- very fresh overall. The palate is quite fresh and austere, with good balance between acidity and volume; it is serious and dry, ideal with seafood.

Producer

Chilean prouder, Errázuriz has teamed up with Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair in Burgundy’s Vosne-Romanée, who has been consultant winemaker for the new Pinot Noir, while the same region’s highly respected geologist, Françoise Vannier-Petit, has been brought in to create a detailed map of the Chilean estate’s soils.

Just 280 cases of Las Pizarras Chardonnay have been produced from its inaugural 2014 vintage. The Pizarras Chardonnay was whole-bunch pressed, and fermented in a French oak barrels and small stainless steel tanks using native yeasts. 60% of the blend underwent malo-lactic fermentation and the wine has spent 14 months in 20% new French oak, with the rest aged in 1 year-old and three year-old French oak barrels. The first release of Las Pizarras Pinot Noir comprises 300 cases from the 2014 vintage. Las Pizarras was made in open-top fermenters, incorporating 20% whole clusters of Pinot Noir, using native yeasts. The wine was aged in French oak for 14 months, 50% of which was new. Although the quantity of new French oak might seem high, Louis-Michel Liger-Belaire suggested that amount, and he was right – it is very well integrated.
