|Somm4All WSET 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The Aconcagua region of Chile benefits from cooling influences from both the Andes Mountains as well as morning fog that blows in off the Pacific Ocean. Combined with complex soil characteristics this is a region that can produce very food wine. This Erraruriz is made from 100% hand picked Chardonnay grapes that were whole-cluster pressed and cold fermented in Stainless steel – done to preserve the fruit characteristics of the grape. On the nose we find lime, pink grapefruit, lemon, green apple, white flower and a little butter. We also notice a bit of “funk” (likely due to the partial wild yeast fermentation employed) as well as some mineral notes (which can be attributed to the slate/schist soil in which the grapes were grown). On the palate it is dry, bright and refreshing. Flavours follow the nose with additional hints of smoke, cedar, spice and caramel. 11 months spent in neutral French oak help provide a medium body mouthfeel along with good fruit and alcohol balance. The medium-plus finish encompasses harmonious interplay of butter, minerality, citrus and peach. Fantastic quality and at this price it is a multiple-purchase wine that you will go to again and again throughout the Summer. Impress your friends and enjoy with seared scallops and lemon/butter grilled shrimp.
|Produced from 100% Chardonnay from the Aconcagua region of Chile. This wine region benefits from cooling breezes and temperatures from the Andes Mountains as well as morning fog that drifts in from the Pacific Ocean. Look for layers of bright apple, ripe peach and toasty, smoky and vanilla flavours on the palate finishing citrus zesty. - Community Wine Reviews|
