More information on wine critics and ratings

A deep ruby-red colour, this Pinot Noir releases subtle notes of red fruit such as sour cherries, rosehips, and wild strawberries, accompanied by notes of forest floor, dampness, and wet earth.

Toasted notes from the barrel aging display a smoky side along with pencil lead, which mingle with its slight minerality.

The palate surprises with crisp acidity, which lends depth and juiciness to the wine. Good structure and smooth, friendly tannins that work well with the acidity to produce a lengthy, persistent finish

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

The aromas in this pinot are fantastic with flowers, citrus, stone and mineral. Medium body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2016)
April 2017 - Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - I caught the 2016 Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir very shortly after bottling. 2016 was a challenging vintage, but for earlier ripening varieties it resulted in wines of outstanding vivacity, tension and character. The only significant change introduced with this vintage was that some 10% of the wine spent the élevage time in egg-shaped concrete vats. The rest aged in French barriques, mostly used, for 11 months. There are some iron and beef blood aromas with some more floral aromas, obviously young and primary. The palate is explosive, with only 13% alcohol and sharp texture and acidity, with very tasty flavors in the long finish. There is a chalky sensation in the tannins, which are very fine-grained. There is no sweetness whatsoever, and the fruit is bright. Really elegant.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2015)
After an initial wave of briny rubbery aromas, this turns towards lively raspberry scents topped by toasty oak. Fresh and punchy in the mouth, with elegance, this tastes of red raspberry and herbal plum. A lightly salty finish with tomato and plum flavors is fresh and lasting.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2015)
Feb 2017 - Brilliant ruby-red. A complex bouquet evokes fresh red berries, potpourri and incense, and a zesty mineral quality adds lift. Lively, mineral-accented red currant, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors pick up a spicy flourish with air and show a nervy, tightly focused quality. Unfurls slowly with aeration, gaining depth and finishing with very good definition and sappy, red fruit-dominated persistence. -- Josh Raynolds
