Vinedo Chadwick 2021 quite simply an icon of Chilean wines, it is the flagship wine of Errazuriz. One of the very best Cabernet Sauvignons that Chile has to offer. The 2021 Vinedo Chadwick received an amazing 100 points from both Luis Guitierrez and Tim Atkin which is an outstanding achievement. 

Vinedo Chadwick is named after Alfonso Chadwick Errázuriz. Born in 1914, Don Alfonso became one of Chile’s most famous businessmen specialising in the food and drink but the wine industry and polo were his two passions. Don Alfonso was considered to be a visionary in his time particularly in the modernization of the Chilean wine industry. In 1983, he took control of Viña Errázuriz at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley. This winery was founded in 1870 by his ancestor Don Maximiano Errázuriz and was the start of Viña Errázuriz as we know it today. Don Alfonso had five children. Today his son Eduardo is President of the Errázuriz Estate, continuing his great legacy; his passion for wine and persistence in pursuit of excellence. The first vintage of Viñedo Chadwick (1999) was released to great success in 2002. Its second vintage (2000) would later make history on 23 January 2004, when the famous Berlin Tasting took place.

Vinedo Chadwick is situated in Puente Alto at the foot of the Andes Mountains on the north bank of the Maipo River. The property consists of 15 hectares in the Alto Maipo region which is considered to be one of Maipo’s best terroirs, particularly for Bordeaux red grape varieties. The vineyard elevation and the cool morning breezes from the Andes and the moderate daytime temperatures allow the grapes to reach the perfect state of ripeness without losing any of its bright, fresh acidity. The broad variation between daytime and night-time temperatures is one of the factors that lead to intense colour in the wines from this area. The moderately fertile soils of alluvial origin with rocky subsoil have excellent drainage, which allows for an ideal balance between plant growth and fruit yield.

The grapes for Vinedo Chadwick are hand-picked in the mornings of the harvest into small 15kg boxes to avoid exposure to high temperatures. On arrival at the winery, grapes are hand sorted and then fermented in small, stainless steel tanks with a higher proportion of skins to must and three pump-overs depending on the degree of extraction required. The wine is racked into 80% new French oak barrels and 20% in foudres where it is aged for 22 months.

2021 was an exceptional vintage due to a moderately cool season that translated into a long even ripening that preserved the natural acidity of the grapes, aroma and colour. The result is an elegant wine, fresh and full of tension, with high aromatic complexity, that is complemented by the finesse of the tannins, a key characteristic of Viñedo Chadwick. A wine with a great elegant structure, persistence and tremendous ageing potential.

Vinedo Chadwick 2021 is  97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot.

This wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Tasting Notes

“This deep purple coloured Viñedo Chadwick 2021 is highly complex on the nose, with intense notes of violets, raspberries and cassis, along with hints of cocoa, coffee beans and nutmeg. On the palate is long and deep, showcasing fresh red fruit, dark chocolate and some notes of sweet spice. The mouth is complex and layered, revealing fine-grained, chalky tannins, juicy acidity, elegance and wonderful persistence. A superb example from this vintage.”
