Description:
Deep ruby-red in colour with the beautiful highlights typical of a young wine.

Its aromatic profile includes plum and raspberry notes mixed with subtle roasted pepper and balsamic touches.

Light notes of toast and fresh fruit are evident on the palate, enhanced by this wine's firm, bright acidity. Medium body and smooth tannins make this wine easy to drink.

85% Merlot, 15% Carmenere.

The grapes were hand picked in April and taken in bins to the winery, where they were destemmed, crushed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was carried out at 24° - 28°C (75° - 82°F) with two pump overs daily. The post fermentation maceration lasted 10 to 25 days, depending on the development of each individual lot. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for approximately 8 months to round out the wine and add a sweet sensation to the palate. The final blend was then fined, stabilized, and lightly filtered before bottling.

Producer Information

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist 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.
Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernisation of the winemaking technology at this historic Estate whilst maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality, Errazuriz has built a reputation as the "Premier Family Wine Estate of Chile".
Errazuriz's philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, "From the best land, the best wine." Vina Errazuriz believe in the concept of 'terroir' and strive to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the winemaking process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua and Casablanca valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity.
