Vinedo Chadwick 2016

The vineyard has been divided into several blocks which are monitored independently and harvested in the cool morning hours to preserve fruit quality. Lots are gently crushed and then fermented separately between 28° to 31° Celsius to maximize their character. This is followed by an extended maceration of up to thirty days depending on the development of the individual lots.

The wine is then aged in French oak barrels, in our underground cellars. Each vineyard lot is aged separately to maximize blending options. Racking takes place four or five times during ageing and is done from barrel.

Blending decisions are made very late in the ageing process just before bottling. The aim of this is to give us the most options for the final blend and to make the best blending decisions after the individual lots have developed their own unique characteristics in barrel. This gives us more control each year over the quality and character of the final wine.

James Suckling

“The blue fruit and dark berry aromas are so attractive and catching. Black licorice and blackberry notes. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins. I like the way the wine rolls over the tongue. Beautiful finish. One of the most structured Viñedo Chadwicks ever. A great bottle. Needs four to five years to soften.”

Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate (Reviewer: Luis Gutiérrez)

“The price of the 2016 Viñedo Chadwick seems to be going through the roof, and so does the quality. This is a unique, classical Maipo Cabernet…Complex, layered, fresh and tasty, it has very fine tannins and is nicely structured but terribly elegant at the same time”

The Wine

Viñedo Chadwick represents the Chadwick family’s long cherished desire to honour the memory of the late Don Alfonso Chadwick Errázuriz with an Ultra Premium red wine showcasing the ancestry, tradition, and expertise of the Chadwick-Errázuriz family for producing fine wines reflecting the family’s passion for excellence. The aim is to make an elegant wine with freshness and purity, showing the Maipo Valley at its highest level. Although Don Alfonso never saw the finished wine, he is remembered with every bottle of Viñedo Chadwick.

The first vintage of Viñedo Chadwick (1999) was released to great success in 2002. Its second vintage (2000) would later make history on 23 January 2004, when the Berlin Tasting took place.

Since its inaugural release Viñedo Chadwick has consistently received the highest praise and recognition throughout its entire history, including being Robert Parker’s highest-rated Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile for five consecutive vintages.

The 2014 vintage marked a milestone for Chilean wine history, as well as for the family winery. On May 2016, Viñedo Chadwick 2014 scored a perfect 100 points, becoming the first Chilean wine to achieve the world’s highest recognition.
