2010 Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay

Chardonnay-South America-Chile

Over the last five years, Errazuriz' Chardonnay Wild Ferment has become recognized as perhaps the top Chardonnay from South America. Errazuriz ferments its best lots of Chardonnay using natural yeasts. Natural fermentation starts slower than inoculated fermentation because the yeasts must grow to sufficient numbers to transform sugars into alcohol. This Chardonnay is a pale yellow color with greenish tints, this wine offers elegant fresh tropical fruit notes with touches of quince and honey that evolve into white floral notes accompanied by a hint of truffle. The fruit reemerges on the palate, accompanied by a subtle minerality that adds complexity, elegance, and a lively acidity that adds a refreshing and juicy mouthfeel. Moderate in volume and body, this wine offers great elegance. Its intense fruit and acidity ensure its great cellaring potential.

"Light yellow-gold. Ripe pear, nectarine and orange on the fragrant spice- and smoke-accented nose. Picks up an exotic iodine quality and a sneaky licorice nuance with air to go with its potent orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Finishes sappy and very long, with firm grip and lingering smokiness. One-third of this wine went through malo and 10% of the barrels were new."

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vi a Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and cool 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. In the last few years, Errazuriz has been recognized as perhaps the single top quality producer of Chilean wines. Its wines were either the top-rated or shared the top rating in the last major Chilean reviews from the Wine Spectator, the Wine Advocate, and Tanzer.
