As the first 100 point wine from Chile, Vinedo Chadwick continues to wow top wine critics around the world. Some highlights from Decanter’s article:

Stephen Brook appraised the wine soon after bottling: ‘Rich, smoky, leathery nose. Very rich, plump and concentrated, opulent and spicy, a complex if somewhat broad wine, with good acidity and length.’
In 2015, Jeannie Cho Lee MW wrote: ‘A beautiful expression of Cabernet fruit – layers of cassis, cedar and tobacco with supple tannins… tightly knit and a bit reserved but opens up with time in the glass.’
Steven Spurrier, long a fan of this wine, recorded in 2016: ‘Still a wonderful nose with hints of rose petal and seductively aromatic. Extraordinary warmth and depth from just eight-year-old vines, almost “southern” richness with the spice but the firmness of Cabernet quite evident.’

In a recent article in Massachusetts’ Beverage Business, Sandy Block, MW discusses the growth, evolution, and resurgence of Chilean Carmenere. He uses MAX Carmenere 2015 as a prime example of high quality Carmenere coming out of Chile describing it as “dark in color, with aromas redolent of coffee and blackberry, this is rich in sweet fruit, lush in texture and strongly tannic. A big wine that has it all.”

Elin McCoy selected 15 of the best Chardonnays under $50 which included the Wild Ferment Chardonnay from Viña Errazuriz. She states, “This big-personality-for-the-price wine comes from a vineyard near the coast in Chile’s Aconcagua region. The swing between warm-day and cold-night temperatures gives the wine citrus and floral aromas along with lemon-lime and green apple flavors. Yes, there’s evident oak, but just the right amount.”

See below for their reviews, and click here to download the profile!

Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2015:

“Beautiful, complex Sauvignon Blanc, bursting with aromas such as white flowers, citrus, yellow cherries, yellow plums and gooseberries, as well as asparagus and tropical fruit. The delicate, fresh and fruity palate has lovely tension, mouthwatering acidity and a length, crisp, mineral finish. Exceptional!”

Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa (Wild Ferment) Chardonnay 2014:

“Subtle, nutty nose with delicate notes of mango and pineapple. Concentrated, rich palate of white flowers, stone fruits, almond, cooked better and a refreshing salty tang. This is a beautiful young wine already with lots of personality, a great structure, a long aftertaste and incredible aging potential.”
