I like the blackberry, black chocolate and dried meat character on the nose and palate. Flower too. Full body, agile and intense with spice and fresh fruit aftertaste. Very lively and beautiful.

Just before leaving Chile, the 2014 Aconcagua Costa Syrah was bottled, so I got to taste it next to the 2013. It was very interesting to see the two vintages together, as the style of the wine is the opposite as the general character of the vintage. This 2014 felt like a cool-climate Syrah with plenty of floral aromas and some hints of smoky bacon à la Rhône Nord, elegant and fresh while being full of character. The palate is medium-bodied with some grainy, slightly dusty tannins. This is a delicious Syrah, fresh and vibrant, elegant and easy to drink but with enough complexity to compete with much more expensive wines. Superb value for money.

Producer

Chilean prouder, Errázuriz has teamed up with Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair in Burgundy’s Vosne-Romanée, who has been consultant winemaker for the new Pinot Noir, while the same region’s highly respected geologist, Françoise Vannier-Petit, has been brought in to create a detailed map of the Chilean estate’s soils. They have produced the first Chilean Grand Cru quality Burgundy, which have received huge scores and everyone is itching to get their fingers on some...

Just 280 cases of Las Pizarras Chardonnay have been produced from its inaugural 2014 vintage. The Pizarras Chardonnay was whole-bunch pressed, and fermented in a French oak barrels and small stainless steel tanks using native yeasts. 60% of the blend underwent malo-lactic fermentation and the wine has spent 14 months in 20% new French oak, with the rest aged in 1 year-old and three year-old French oak barrels. The first release of Las Pizarras Pinot Noir comprises 300 cases from the 2014 vintage. Las Pizarras was made in open-top fermenters, incorporating 20% whole clusters of Pinot Noir, using native yeasts. The wine was aged in French oak for 14 months, 50% of which was new. Although the quantity of new French oak might seem high, Louis-Michel Liger-Belaire suggested that amount, and he was right – it is very well integrated.
