Winemaker's Notes:

With a light greenish-yellow color, the Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2011 has a fresh, expressive nose with tropical fruit aromas fused with mineral notes and a subtle touch of toast and brioche from the barrel aging, which greatly enhances complexity. On the palate, a zingy acidity balances out its lush, creamy texture.

About Errazuriz:

Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded ViƱa Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, north of Santiago. This valley has cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes--ideal for growing grapes. Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant, Eduardo Chadwick--the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernization of the winemaking technology at this historic estate while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines, dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality.
