2019 Vinedo Chadwick
The 2019 Viñedo Chadwick is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Puente Alto, one of the best zones within Maipo. It is from a moderately warm vintage that yielded a wine with only 13% alcohol and good freshness. It contains about 3% Petit Verdot. Super elegant and that also explains the very high scores of Parker and Suckling. The vines were planted in 1992 and the vines were fermented in equal parts in stainless steel and concrete or troncoconical vats. Three quarters of the wine was aged in new barriques and the rest in Stockinger foudres for 22 months, including time for malolactic fermentation.
The Chadwick is an absolute icon wine and is one of the best wine in the world. The color is deep cherry red with a purple glow. After some contact with the oxygen in the air, the bouquet gives off fruity notes of blueberries and wild strawberries. Also nuances of tobacco, freshly roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, truffle, cedar wood and black pepper. On the palate, the fruit character comes back strongly with a hint of caramel from the wood ageing. The finale is grandiose with a round, powerful character with elegance and complexity and a lot of subtlety. Limited availability.
A vineyard of only 15 hectares with the ultimate terroir for one of the most illustrious wines of Chile. More than once a glorious victory in blind tastings with Premier Grand Crus from Bordeaux. 99/100 Suckling 97/100 Robert Parker.

Chile deserves the top prize of all 'new' wine countries. Mainly due to the fact that the wines of this country have found a connection with the taste of many wine lovers, wherever in the world, at a record pace. There are of course special reasons for this success. The climate and soil type are ideal here and the classic European grape varieties were already present. Yet it is mainly thanks to the vision of people like Eduardo Chadwick-Errázuriz that these benefits were so quickly translated into resounding success. Exactly 140 years ago, Maximiano Errázuriz planted his vineyard in Panquehue, at the foot of the highest mountain in the Andes chain. The cool fall winds, proximity to the Aconcagua River and annual rainfall of only 25 cm make this an ideal area for wine growing. His great-grandson Eduardo Chadwick-Errázuriz has added a number of plots since 1990; they are planted with the grape varieties that best suit the specific soil and microclimate. As a result, in addition to the classic cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay, the merlot, shiraz and carmenère also benefit from this earthly paradise for wine growing. Viña Errázuriz has since grown to become the absolute top of Chilean wine producers.
