More information on wine critics and ratings

The fruit was handpicked in the early morning hours and then carefully transported to the winery in small 14-kg boxes and 400-kg bins. Some of the grapes were destemmed, crushed, and pressed to preserve their natural acidity, while the rest underwent a cold pre-fermentation maceration for 6 hours before being pressed to extract maximum volume on the palate and enhance aromatic expression.

To preserve the wine's aromatic potential, most of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 12-15C (54-59° F) using yeasts specially selected to highlight aromatic compounds at low temperatures. Just 2% of the grapes was fermented in barrels to add complexity to the final blend.

Special care was taken at each stage of the process to prevent the grapes and juice from coming into contact with oxygen to preserve natural fruit aromas and crispness.

The batches were aged on the lees for 3 months to develop texture and volume on the palate.

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) : 92 Points (2016)
April 2017 - Luis Gutierrez - The 2016 Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc was produced with grapes from the Manzanar vineyard in the coastal part of Aconcagua 12 kilometers away from the Ocean on clay and slate soils. It fermented in stainless steel where it was kept wit lees for three months. It's quite herbal and a little reductive, and they are working towards a more austere and less herbal style. In this cool vintage the palate feels sharp, with moderate alcohol and a dry sensation, quite linear, with some volume provided by the yeast's work. With time, the yellow chili note gets stronger. A remarkable coastal Sauvignon. It has a marked style.

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2016)
Bright and fruity with an oily character to this dense wine. Some fennel undertones. Dense and rich at the finish. Screw cap. Drink now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2015)
Feb 2017 - Brilliant straw. High-pitched, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by suggestions of lemongrass and fennel. Fleshy, deeply concentrated pear and Meyer lemon flavors display a bitter edge of quinine and offer impressive palate coverage. Zesty acidity adds bite to the impressively long, focused finish, which repeats the pear and mineral notes. -- Josh Raynolds

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2015)
Oceanic aromas of grass, scallion, baby garlic and lime reflect cool-coast origins. A slick, juicy mouthfeel is minerally, while this offers flavors of nettle, lime, passion fruit and green onion. A long, stony finish leans towards green flavors.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2015)
Tasted Sept '16 - Intensely aromatic with as much citrus as green fruit but there’s green fig and just a touch of passionfruit, relieved from over-pungency by a stony quality. Crisp and tight on the palate, not showing any sign of development. Stony and dry on the finish and still with plenty of fruit. Salty finish. Both subtle and intense with a light dry grip adding freshness. (JH)

Odfjell Orzada Carignan 2018
Odfjell Orzada Carignan 2018
Our winemaking style started with the discovery of a centenary-old organic vineyard that grew lost in Cauquenes, on the Tres Esquinas estate. Planted with a patrimonial variety that has forged Odfjell‘s identity and defined the character of all its wines. These bush-trained Carignan vines have allowed Chile to rediscover a variety, a culture, and ancestral traditions. And have led us to make a wine that unsettles and goes beyond conventions, expressing a friendlier and more feminine side of Carignan.
