Errazuriz Estate Series Pinot Noir is part of Errazuriz estate series range of wines and is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes sourced from the Aconcagua Valley DO.
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.
Errazuriz Estate Series Pinot Noir is designed to show the true character of each grape variety and terroir in its chosen wine producing zone. After harvest the grapes for Estate Series Pinot Noir were destemmed, crushed, and deposited into open-topped stainless steel tanks for fermentation. 50% of the wine was later aged in French oak barrels for 7 months.
This wine is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
