More information on wine critics and ratings

With a light greenish-yellow colour, Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment has a fresh, expressive nose with tropical fruit aromas fused with mineral notes and a subtle touch of toast and brioche from the barrel aging, which greatly enhances complexity.

On the palate, a zingy acidity balances out its lush, creamy texture.

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

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2016)
This is another gorgeous white with sliced apple, lemon rind, and just a hint of cream. Grapefruit. Full body, layered and beautiful. Energetic and vivid.

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. Rating: 91+

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2012)
Tasted Sept '13 - Lifted and interesting! Real concentration and race, but be warned, still quite chewy and muscular.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2011)
Feb 2014. By Josh Raynolds.Pale gold. Nectarine, poached pear and lemon curd on the nose, with suave vanilla, butter and floral accents. Deeply pitched orchard and pit fruit flavors are given lift by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness with air. This powerful yet lithe chardonnay finishes with very good clarity, length and focus.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2011)
This compact white leads with a smoky edge to the Jonagold apple, melon rind and green plum fruit, ending with an aftertaste of citrus zest and spice. Drink now.

The “Vigna Rionda” vineyard is in one of the best positions in Serralunga: when Giovanni and Renato Massolino decided to buy it, they exchanged it for a larger vineyard. It produces a powerful, concentrated wine, suitable for long ageing.
