Description

Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay is made from grapes sourced from Errazuriz’s La Escultura Estate in DO Valle de Casablanca.

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. Errazuriz’s philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, “From the best land, the best wine.” The La Escultura vineyard is located west of Santiago and just 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the Casablanca Valley enjoys a coastal influence that moderates temperatures during the ripening period. The fresh sea breeze enables easy, gradual ripening that encourages the conservation of the grapes’ aromas and flavours and ensures desirable levels of acidity. These conditions make the Casablanca Valley a privileged place for producing cool climate varieties such as Chardonnay

Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay is so called because fermentation is carried out using only native, wild yeast. The wild yeasts are not selected using technological criteria (SO2 resistance, alcohol resistance, etc) and experience higher stress during fermentation. This effect and the presence of a greater variety of yeast strains produces different concentrations and proportions of by products, adding distinctive flavours, and therefore more complexity, to the wine. Fermentation was carried out at 18-24°C (64-75°F. Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay was then aged for 11 months in second and third use French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay has a straw yellow colour with greenish hues. This Chardonnay presents attractive notes of citrus fruits, accompanied by melon, pineapple and white peaches. All framed in soft notes of dried fruits. On the palate the citrus profile dominates, complemented by soft notes of tropical fruits and pastries. It is a fresh, deep and long Chardonnay. It shows tension and creaminess in a delicate balance that makes this a wine of great persistence and elegant mid palate.

Food Pairing

Try with creamy chicken pie with flaky pastry.
