Errazuriz, Chardonnay, Aconcagua Costa, 2014
In Stock Now!
Venerable Chilean producer Errazuríz has found a new lease of life since the fruit from its new vineyards near the Pacific coast came on stream. Here the site gives a charge of mineral freshness and nervy energy to the ripe full fruit and subtle savoury oak in a perfectly balanced, world-class chardonnay. 50 Best wines for Christmas, David Williams, The Guardian, November 2016.
Subtle nutty nose with delicate notes of mango and pineapple. Concentrated, rich palate with white flowers, stone fruits, amazing almondy taste and cooked butter, and a refreshing salty tang. This is a beautiful young wine with already lots of personality, a great structure, long aftertaste and an incredible ageing potential. Platinum 95 pts. Decanter Best in Category, Chilean Chardonnay, Decanter World Wine Awards 2016.
Two notes from Jancis Robinson, MW: "Stones, fresh, sleek and cool. Chablis-like. 17/20", www.jancisrobinson.com, 19th November 2015; and "Stone, Vine & Sun also offer...Errázuriz Chardonnay 2014 Aconcagua Costa, another crystalline example, this time cooled by proximity to the Pacific", A Pick of Cool Whites, www.jancisrobinson.com, 12th December 2015; and in the FT weekend magazine of the same date.
Open aromas - a hint of struck match, clean oak and chalkiness. Oak apparent on the palate too, with wonderfully bright green fruit behind. Silkily textured but also with real cut. Brilliant. Now-2018
