Errazuriz Las Pizarras Chardonnay 2018


In Stock

“2017 was not an easy act to follow, but the 2018 Aconcagua Costa “Las Pizarras” Chardonnay managed nicely. From a cool year, it has notes of white flowers and nuts and is a little lighter than the 2017, which was more structured. It doesn’t have the depth and sharpness of the 2017, but it has very good freshness. It’s vertical and mineral and has nice tension, following the path of the 2015 and 2017. This is now matured mostly in 300- and 400-liter oak barrels, and the oak is nicely integrated. Only 50% of the wine went through malolactic. 6,557 bottles and 60 magnums were filled in February 2019. Drink: 2020-2028. 96+ points

I tasted part of the portfolio before some wines were released through the négociants of Bordeaux in September 2019 and the rest in November. I have included all of the wines here for context and completeness.”
