The Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard is made from grapes hand-picked in Errazuriz' prestigious Don Maximiano Estate, located in the Aconcagua Valley, a semi-desert region where the hot summer days are cooled by afternoon breezes. The vines are planted on a 5° slope with gravely, sandy clay soils which drain very well. The high day-night temperature differences of the Don Maximiano Estate slows ripening and helps create intensity of flavors and concentration. It is difficult to find a better quality Sauvignon from anywhere in the world at this price point.

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vi a Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. In the last few years, Errazuriz has been recognized as perhaps the single top quality producer of Chilean wines. Its wines were either the top-rated or shared the top rating in the last major Chilean reviews from the Wine Spectator, the Wine Advocate, and Tanzer.
