Vina Errazuriz  - Wild Ferment - Chardonnay

The grapes for the first Chardonnay Wild Ferment from Aconcagua Costa were grown in the Manzanar Vineyard, a 1,047-hectare estate of hills rising 100–300 m (328–984 feet) above sea level. Owing to its location just 12 km from the Pacific Ocean, Manzanar has a heat summation that ranges from 1,199 degree days in cooler sectors to 1,331 in warmer ones and an average temperature of 18.4°C (65.2°F) in January. These unique conditions make it ideal for growing cold climate varieties such as Chardonnay. In 2005, 28.5 hectares of this variety were planted using clones 548, 95 and 76. Clone 548 produces grapes with great concentration and structure, while clone 95 results in intensely aromatic fruit full of citrus and tropical notes, and clone 76 is an early ripening vine that is well adapted to cold climate conditions. The estate’s vertically trained, drip irrigated vineyards are planted in soils with a thin (40–80 cm) loam layer overlaying a strata of clay and rock.

Winemakers Comments: A pale yellow colour 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.
