 Vinedo Chadwick 2015

Viñedo Chadwick 2015 vintage was a validation of our focus and attention to detail approach in our vineyards, a unique estate of 15 hectares in Alto Maipo. Gravelly soils, farmed with minimal tillage accompanied by our meticulous picking and sorting decision gave us a wine with vivid, dense red colour bursting with freshness and red fruit. The wine is elegantly layered and is incredibly appealing with its silky and refined tannins, supporting a delicious texture and prolonged by a lingering finish. The 2013 Viñedo Chadwick combines great structure and elegance with a sense of restraint, providing great pleasure even at the early stage of its life.

Viñedo Chadwick 2015 vintage was a validation of our focus
and attention to detail approach in our vineyards, a unique
estate of 15 hectares in Alto Maipo. Gravelly soils, farmed
with minimal tillage accompanied by our meticulous picking
and sorting decision gave us a wine with vivid, dense red
colour bursting with freshness and red fruit. The wine is
elegantly layered and is incredibly appealing with its silky and
refined tannins, supporting a delicious texture and prolonged
by a lingering finish. The 2013 Viñedo Chadwick combines
great structure and elegance with a sense of restraint,
providing great pleasure even at the early stage of its life.
Vineyard
The vineyard for Viñedo Chadwick is located in Puente Alto,
the southeast sector of Santiago, at the foot of the Andes
Mountains and placed along the north bank of the Maipo
River. The 15 hectares property is situated at an altitude of
650 m in the area of Alto Maipo, a place for red Bordeaux
varieties of exceptional quality.
Winemaking
To avoid exposing grapes to high temperatures, they were
handpicked in the morning and transported in small 12-kg
boxes. We followed the progress of ripeness through aerial
pictures, which allowed us to identify homogeneous lots and
differentiate harvest moments according to each case. On
arrival at the winery, the grapes were carefully inspected on a double selection board to remove
vegetal remains and damaged berries to ensure the quality of the wine. Fermentation took place
at 24¼-28¼C in in small-volume stainless steel tanks to help increase the percentage of contact
between skins and juice. The wine undergoes three daily pumpovers depending on the level of
extraction desired in each case. To enhance aromas and colours, the total maceration time was of
23 to 40 days, depending on the individual development of each lot. The wine was racked to
French oak barrels, 90% of them new, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was kept
for 22 months. Clarification and stabilization occurred in a natural way during this period.
Vintages
The ideal 2013 growing season was classic Alto Maipo conditions, presenting overall moderate
temperatures with cool spring months. Warm and dry conditions during budbreak through
flowering got things off to a great start followed by a warm summer days and cool nights. A nice
warmer stretch from mid January through February helped ripen the crop, and we enjoyed a long,
even ripening phase during March that gave the fruit the extended hangtime we were aiming for.
Total heat summation during the growing season reached 1,589 degree days (DD), 36 DD more
than the previous year, and 10 DD higher than the average of five last seasons. Total rainfall
reached 55 mm, 85% more than the average of the past five growing seasons. Harvest arrived as
expected in beginning of April delivering a remarkable crop of beautifully rich, ripe and intense
fruit.
