Las Pizarras Chardonnay

Aconcagua Costa

Sourced entirely from Errazuriz' Aconcagua Costa estate, from specific lots that have a significant component of pizarra (schist). Given the extremes of this cool climate site, and diversity of the soils and elevations, each small block ripens at its own pace. Proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean and well-drained soils with high level of schist and metamorphic rock allows the Estate to produce Chardonnay with exceptional complexity, depth, minerality, and natural acidity.

The wine opens with hints of Meyer lemon, orange blossoms, and hints of dried fruit. The palate is heightened by a driving minerality and citrus fruit, particularly tangerine.  The defining impression is marked by a coastal salinity that is uniquely expressive of the site. This is a structured wine with balance, tension and precision from start to finish that is unique to Aconcagua Costa.
