Errazuriz continues to lead the way in sustainable, progressive Chilean winemaking. This fresh, saline-laced Chardonnay is the perfect example. With vineyards 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean at La Escultura Estate, this Casablanca Valley wine embraces the cool stream of air from the chilly Humboldt Current that cycles off-shore. The whole-cluster fruit was fermented in stainless before partial MLF and 10 months’ aging in French oak (17% new). White peach leads the tropical fruit on the medium body and creamy palate, finely spiced on the finish. A lovely, serious, fresh, approachable New World Chardy at an incredible price.
