2021 Vinedo Chadwick
2021 brought an exceptional vintage thanks to a moderate season that translated into long, even ripening that preserved the natural acidity of the grapes. The result is an elegant wine, fresh and full of tension, with a high aromatic complexity, which is complemented by the finesse of the tannins, an important characteristic of Viñedo Chadwick. A wine with a wonderfully elegant structure, perseverance and enormous maturing potential.
The season started with warmer than normal weather, allowing for even ripening, and returned to moderate temperatures in November and December. A little rain in late January helped replenish well-drained gravel soils and cool summer temperatures. Cooler conditions during the summer allowed the healthy grapes to ripen softly and smoothly. The ripeness of the tannins and sugars progressed slowly together until picking time. The berries were firm, with excellent color, ripe tannins and fresh acidity, balanced by an optimal sugar content. After this mild ripening season, the harvest started towards the end of March.
This deep purple colored Viñedo Chadwick 2021 is very complex on the nose, with intense aromas of violets, raspberries and cassis. Followed by cocoa, coffee beans and nutmeg. A wine that is long and deep together with flavors of fresh red fruit, dark chocolate and spices. In the mouth the wine is complex and layered. It reveals fine-grained, chalky tannins with juicy acidity, elegance and a long finish.

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.
