Errazuriz Las Pizarras Chardonnay 2018

The 2018 vintage of Las Pizarras Chardonnay shines with its bright yellow-straw colour. On the nose, it delivers notes of citrus fruits, accompanied by some floral notes framed by soft notes of marzipan and nuts. On the palate, the wine enters with freshness and deepness, followed by a delicate and complex feel. The palate is dominated by its citrusy profile, plus a hint of tropical fruits accompanied by delicate notes of toasted bread and dried fruits, all crowned by an exquisite mineral sensation, great persistence and an elegant finish.

Vineyard
Sourced entirely from our Aconcagua Costa Estate from
specific lots that have a significant component of
metamorphic rock including slate (pizarras, in Spanish). Given
the extreme of this cool climate site, as well as the
uniqueness of its soils and elevations, each small block ripens
at its own pace. Its proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean and its
well-drained soils, with high level of slate and metamorphic
rock, allow the Estate to produce Chardonnay of exceptional
complexity, depth, minerality and natural acidity.
Winemaking
Grapes were hand-harvested between March 5th and March 23rd during the early morning
hours to ensure the fruit arrives at the winery under cool temperatures and ready for 100%
whole cluster pressing. The juice was clarified before being moved by gravity flow into small
stainless steel tanks for fermentation. In order to maintain the fresh character of the site, 50% of
blend underwent malolactic fermentation progressing slowly in the cellar until an ideal acidbalance was achieved. The wine was drained and then kept for 13 months in French oak barrels,
15% of them new.
