Tasting Notes

Viñedo Chadwick 2013 vintage was a validation of our focus and attention to detail approach in our vineyards, a unique estate of 15 hectares in Alto Maipo. Gravelly soils, farmed with minimal tillage accompanied by our meticulous picking and sorting decision gave us a wine with vivid, dense red colour bursting with freshness and red fruit. The wine is elegantly layered and is incredibly appealing with its silky and refined tannins, supporting a delicious texture and prolonged by a lingering finish. The 2013 Viñedo Chadwick combines great structure and elegance with a sense of restraint, providing great pleasure even at the early stage of its life.

About the Winery

The venture of Errazuriz Viñedo Chadwick started with the journey of Alfonso Chadwick Errázuriz. Alfonso had a passion for wines and vineyards that led him to convert his polo-playing field into a grape plantation area. It produced wine that got named after him in his honour. 

Deemed a visionary of his time, Alfonso is said to have modernised the wine industry of Chile. He took over the ownership of Viña Errázuriz in 1983. Alfonso’s ancestor, Don Maximiano Errázuriz, established Viña Errázuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley. After taking over, Alfonso asked his son, Eduardo Chadwick, to work with him and restore the prestige and fame of the winery to what it initially was. 

Alfonso established the first wine brokerage in Chile in the early 1930s. In 1942, he purchased the 300 hectares of the Viña San José de Tocornal estate and its associated vineyards in the Alto Maipo Valley. Ever since then, the grapes of the land remained to be of exceptional quality. Later, when the property got divided, the family retained the principal 25 hectares of land and their home. They also kept Alfonso’s polo field.

After Alfonso passed away, Eduardo took over as the President of Errazuriz Viñedo Chadwick to continue his legacy, pursuit, and passion for superior quality wines. In today’s time, the winery follows and implements sustainable viticulture practices. It provides and creates a natural environment for the plants to grow without any chemical fertilisers and pesticides. The farming decisions followed by the staff and workers ensure that the fruits get harvested at optimal uniformity and ripeness. The quality of the grapevines and their produce gets guaranteed by a unique technical drip system of irrigation that the winery uses. All these factors help attain an excellent standard of the wines produced by Errazuriz Viñedo Chadwick.
