Description:
This light-bodied Pinot delivers fragrant red fruit on the nose with a classic palate of raspberry and red cherry and well-integrated oak.

This wine is bright ruby-red with purple highlights. The elegant nose displays fresh raspberries and cherries with subtle touches of smoke and tobacco. The friendly, well-balanced palate has a crisp quality that recalls baked apples, blueberries, and cherries, all complemented by toasted smoky notes from the oak aging.

The grapes were hand picked in March and taken to the cellar in small 14 kg (31 lb) boxes where they were sorted, gently destemmed, and deposited into stainless steel tanks. A 57-day cold soak at 68C/43-46F followed to enhance fruit intensity and spicy notes. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at 26-30C/79-86F, followed by a post-fermentation maceration for 20 days of additional skin contact. The wine was aged for eight months in French oak barrels.

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.
