Description

Errazuriz Aconcagua Alto Carmenere is 100% Carmenere sourced from selection of different “Max’s” vineyard blocks in the Aconcagua Valley.

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. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant Eduardo Chadwick. 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 have vineyards in Maipo, Casablanca and Aconcagua including their Don Maximiano Estate Vineyards and new vineyards at their Aconcagua Costa “Manzanar” Estate. The “Manzanar” Estate is quite new and is located in the coastal sector some 12 kms away from the Pacific Ocean which influences the vineyards in this region with the cool sea breezes. The estate consists of 230 hectares of vineyards planted with grape varieties that prosper in the slightly cooler climate here: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

The grapes for Errazuriz Aconcagua Alto Carmenere come from a selection of different vineyard blocks in the Aconcagua Valley. Located in the interior of the valley, the vineyard soils have a predominantly silty texture and are of colluvial origin. The special conditions of nutrition and drainage of the diverse soils help control plant vigour, producing balanced fruit loads with small bunches and berries. Grapes are handpicked, double sorted and then crushed. The must was deposited into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Then, the wine was moved directly to French oak barrels, 30% of which were new, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for a total of 14 months.

This wine is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
