Description

Errazuriz Estate Series Shiraz is part of the Errazuriz estate series range of wines and is made from 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier sourced from the Valle de Acongagua.

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 Estate Series Shiraz were hand picked in April and then transported to the cellar, where they were destemmed, crushed, and deposited into stainless steel tanks for fermentation with two daily pumpovers. The length of the post-fermentation maceration depended on the development of the individual lots and total skin contact varied between 10 and 25 days. Two thirds of the wine was aged for 7 months in oak barrels, which helped round out the flavour and obtain a subtle sweet sensation on the palate. 95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier.

Serve With

Errazuriz Estate Series Shiraz is good match for lamb chops, barbequed meats and grilled vegetables.
