(2016) I really liked this wine when tasted nine months ago on my visit to Chile, but tasting again in the UK it showed possibly even better. From the same wild, rugged coastal Aconcagua vineyards as Errazuriz's icon 'Pizzaras' Chardonnay, one of South America's greatest white wines (but made in only tiny quantities and at three times the price), this sees 10 months in older barrels, and has a toasted oatmeal richness with wheaty touches, a little honey, the fruit subtle with apple and citrus. The palate has delicious ripeness and sweet mid-palate fruit, but finishes with lovely clarity and just a hint of mineral saltiness.
(2016) Very little new oak, but 10 months in barrel. Low pH. Has toasted oatmeal richness, with wheaty touches, a little honey and the fruit subtle and apple and citrus but really attractive. The palate has delicious fruit ripeness and sweet mid-palate fruit, but finishes with lovely clarity, just a hint of the saltiness.
