Wonderfully rich, round and creamy palate with, sweet vanilla oak and balancing fresh acidity; the finish is long and delicious.

With a soft yellow colour with golden touches, this wine offers elegant notes of fresh fruit nicely enhanced by delicate aromas of lightly toasted caramel and butterscotch from the French oak aging. A light swirling produces notes of white citrus flowers similar to grapefruit and mandarin blossoms, which highlight the wines minerality. The fruit stands out on the palate, accompanied by a lively acidity that balances perfectly with its creamy, extravagant oiliness from the malolactic fermentation.

The grapes were hand-picked in the early morning hours between the third week of March and the second week of April and packed in 14 kg boxes then taken to the cellar. The fruit was rigorously sorted to guarantee the highest quality, and then crushed whole-cluster. The must was cold decanted in stainless steel tanks in order to ferment with clean musts. Approximately 35% of the final blend underwent malolactic fermentation to enhance complexity, and 100% was aged on the lees for 8 months in French oak barrels, 13% new.

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.
