Wine Note

Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa

Fabulous Chardonnay on schist soils on the coastal part of the Aconcagua valley, 10-12 km from the sea, is fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques (and aged there for 10 months, 0% new). Fifteen percent of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, because it was a cold year and they wanted to give it more volume, with no battonage and only 13% alcohol.

James Suckling rated this Chile's Best Chardonnay and gave it 95 points
"This is phenomenal white with sliced apple, papaya, and chalk with hints of slate. Turns to limes. Full body, with bright acidity and a racy acidity that goes on for minutes with the fruit. Dry austerity at the end gives it incredible character. This was fermented and aged in second and third year oak. Ten months. A triumph. A reductive structured style."
