Winemaker Notes

This light greenish-yellow Chardonnay stands out for its fine, delicate structure and good balance. The fresh and complex nose offers aromas of mandarin orange, orange blossom, white peach and light notes of pear. The palate impresses with vibrant acidity and its characteristic minerality.

Francisco Baettig’s sure touch with Chardonnay is evident on this fresh, creamy, peach and citrus fruit number from the Aconcagua Coast. The oak is very subtle here. 2018-21. Alcohol: 13%

JS 91
James Suckling
Aromas of sliced apple and hints of stone with some vanilla and cream. Full body, round and soft texture with lots yogurt and mineral undertones. Dense. Screw cap.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The coastal 2016 Chardonnay Aconcagua Costa from Arboleda, the sister project of Errazuriz, was produced with grapes grown 12 kilometers away from the Pacific Ocean, from the coastal part of Aconcagua. It fermented with native yeast in oak barrels where the wine matured for ten months. It has moderate alcohol (13%) and remarkable acidity, very clean aromas and flavors. It's very dry, with a sharp texture and very fine acidity. 50,000 bottles produced.

Arboleda  Winery Image

Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes. The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.

The Aconcagua River runs east from the charming costal town of Valparaiso and bisects the land creating the valley after which it was named. While alluvial soils predominate the Aconcagua Valey along its river throughout, its east-west flow creates drastically different conditions on each of its ends. Its western, seaside vineyards, with clay and stony soils upon gently rolling hills, produce cool-climate varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Its inner region is one of Chile’s hottest and produces some of its best red wines. Panquehue in the inner Aconcagua is the site of Chile’s first Syrah vines, planted in 1993.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
