Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc Single Vineyard 2010, Chile

This Errazuriz Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Escultura estate in Chile's cool Casablanca Valley.

The nose shows plenty of typical herbaceous Sauvignon aromas, with gooseberries and cut grass; the palate feels full, rounded and moutfilling, partly due to extended aging on the lees, with crisp, balanced green apple and pineapple acidity and a savoury finish with more herbaceous aromas.

A well-made easy drinker, it is in style part-way between a challenging, steely, cool-climate Loire Sauvignon and something more tropical from Marlborough.

£9.99 from Majestic, slurp; provided for review
