VIÑA ERRAZURIZ STANDS OUT IN CHILE’S ANNUAL REPORT BY ROBERT PARKER

VIÑA ERRAZURIZ SPOTLIGHTED IN ROBERT PARKER’S ANNUAL CHILE REPORT

With exceptional scores, Viña Errazuriz led the latest Annual Report on Chilean wines, published in the December 2015 issue of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. In the report, entitled “Chile: Think Outside the Box”, author Luis Gutierrez offered a summary of his findings, outlining today’s complex Chilean wine scene.

Some highlights for Viña Errazuriz in the report include the inaugural vintage release of 2014 Las Pizarras Chardonnay, which earned 95 points, Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve 2013 and The Blend Collection White 2015, each with 93 points, and Las Pizarras Pinot Noir 2014 and The Blend Collection Red 2012, with 92 points each.

“Tasting the Errázuriz line up is always exciting, as they are exploring the coastal, fresher parts of their vineyards, separating plots and vinifying them separately. Part of this search resulted in the creation of two groundbreaking wines from slate soils, a terroir still to be explored and exploited in Chile. The slate (or schist) wines show subdued minerality and a different character, and while the Pinot Noir is very good, the Chardonnay really excels. The team of Eduardo Chadwick and Francisco Baetting are showing clockwork precision with better wines each vintage. They are all highly recommended,” commented –Luis Gutierrez
