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

“…the wine is still very fresh, with moderate alcohol, perfectly ripe fruit and super integrated oak, coming through as elegant within the powerful style of the zone, with red and black fruit, some aromatic herbs, the cedary and spicy notes of the variety and the signature tannins of Cabernet, keeping the juiciness of the last few years. The little bit of Petit Verdot in the blend gives it a spicy touch. It’s vibrant, balanced and intense, still a little young and creamy, and I’d wait a little bit longer before pulling the cork. This can surely age in bottle, as it has the ingredients and the balance to do so; it has the elegance of 2016 with a little more structure and depth—and a little more clout too.”

Viñedo Chadwick 2018

Vintage 2018 presented ideal conditions throughout the season: a moist winter, a spring with mild
temperatures, a warm December, a moderately fresh January and warmer temperatures towards the end of
the season, allowed a balanced growth of the vines and a long, gentle ripening of the grapes.
This season began with good water reserves in the soils, as rains between May and October totaled 281 mm, 31%
above the historical records of 213 mm for the same period.
Spring presented normal temperatures in September, which allowed bud break for Cabernet Sauvignon on
September 20th, very close to historical dates. It was all balanced just the following month, as November scored
11% warmer temperatures than average, continuing with the normal development of the growing season as
flowering unfolded on November 13th, among historical dates as well.
December provided warm, sunny days for grapes to continue the gentle ripening and a perfect fruit set, with no
rains on the distant horizon, guaranteeing full healthiness in our berries. January provided a welcomed recess from
the summer’s warm temperatures, producing a slight delay in veraison.
February and March naturally speeded up the ripening with heat summations that slightly surpassed average
records, becoming the guiding light for an early harvest that started in March 12th and finished in March 29th.
The harvested grapes had a wonderful balance, excellent acidity and low alcohol, while the skins and seeds
revealed perfect ripeness, which speaks of a clockwork path between nature’s gifted vintage and our winemaking
and viticultural teams, heading towards perhaps the most balanced vintage ever crafted of Viñedo Chadwick.
Varietals: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot
Aging: 22 months, 80% in new French oak barrels and 20% in foudres
Alcohol: 13.5º
Viñedo Chadwick is a tribute to Alfonso Chadwick that showcases the tradition and expertise of the
Chadwick-Errázuriz family in producing ne wines. e vineyard in Puente Alto D.O. Maipo Valley is
considered the cradle of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon in Chile. Viñedo Chadwick made history at the
legendary Berlin Tasting and marked another milestone becoming the rst Chilean wine to score 100 points.
“The truly exceptional 2018 vintage of Viñedo Chadwick displays an intense ruby red colour with violet
shimmer. Elegant, fresh and linear entry on the nose, with aromas of cherry, cassis, raspberry and delicate notes of
blueberry pie. The palate shows red fruit and blackberry, all framed by soft tones of bitter chocolate and some cedar,
subtly filled by very fine-grained and silky tannins. Extremely elegant, intense and of a unique depth, this is
perhaps the most balanced vintage ever crafted of Viñedo Chadwick, promising a great aging potential.”

The aromas show blackcurrant, pine-tree, violet and light spearmint character. Full-bodied, yet reserved and tight with fine, creamy tannins. Hints of currants and fresh herbs. Extremely long and layered.”
