This blanco is a blend of primarily Moscatel, supported by Semillon. Erazo only uses natural yeasts and cement tanks for fermenting and aging. This wine gleams with a vibrancy and energy all its own, aromas of fresh nectarine, juicy peach, orange blossom, with flavors of saline sea breezes and crunchy golden apple and citrus fruit that carry over a hefty granite minerality from its soils.
