More information on wine critics and ratings

A pale yellow color with greenish tints, this wine offers elegant fresh tropical fruit notes with touches of quince and honey that evolve into white floral notes accompanied by a hint of truffle.

The fruit reemerges on the palate, accompanied by a subtle minerality that adds complexity, elegance, and a lively acidity that adds a refreshing and juicy mouthfeel.

Moderate in volume and body, this wine offers great elegance. Its intense fruit and acidity ensure its great cellaring potential.

Origins The 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. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 91+ Points (2016)
The 2016 Aconcagua Costa Chardonnay was produced by fermenting the juice of the full clusters in barrel with indigenous yeasts. Only half of the volume underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in 100% used French oak barrels in contact with the lees for ten months. The vines are only 12 kilometers away from the sea, and that provides for a marine, saline sensation in all these coastal wines. There are some orange peel aromas, hints of wet chalk and a hint of smoke. As with the Sauvignon, the palate shows better than the nose at this early stage, dry and with good tension, a fine texture and a long finish. 27,931 bottles were filled in February 2017.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2015)
May 2016 - Linear and focused white with sliced pear and apple character. Medium to full body, honey, mineral and salty undertones. Steely and austere. Serious for the price. Fermented and aged in used barrels. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 88 Points (2015)
Moderately ripe white-fruit aromas of peach and melon come with a hint of buttery oak. This feels lean and citric, with more acid than body. A shot of citric flavor gives way to yeasty dryness, while the finish is juicy but bitter around the edges.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2014)
June 2015 - Pale yellow-gold. A highly perfumed, complex bouquet evokes ripe pear, white peach, anise, buttered toast and jasmine. Fleshy, broad and dry on the palate, offering energetic orchard and pit fruit flavors and a bracing jolt of bitter citrus zest. Shows very good depth as well as vivacity and finishes on a chalky mineral note, with strong persistence and an echo of smokiness.-- Josh Raynolds

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17 Points (2014)
Tasted Sept 2015 - Stones, fresh, sleek and cool. Chablis-like.
