Read moreThe 2013 La Cumbre is produced from selected grapes from the Don Maximiliano Vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley and from the Manzanar Vineyard in the cooler Aconcagua Costa; it fermented by individual lot in stainless steel and was raised in French oak for up to two years before blending and bottling. It's still very young and feels marked by the élevage, with plenty of spicy and smoky aromas; it is quite varietal with smoked bacon and violets with a lactic touch and some tar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, quite juicy, round and fleshy, with powerful flavors and good acidity. With time it reveals the cool vintage with some herbal (raspberry leaf) notes. 11,388 bottles produced.
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.
