Written By Treve Ring Libations / White Wine Sep 25, 2009 Viña Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2007 SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCasablanca Valley, Aconcagua, Chile $22.00www.errazuriz.comMonday, September 28th is the annual Wines of Chile tasting event in Vancouver. 30 Chilean wineries will be represented – including Viña Errazuriz, one of Chile’s most lauded and respected. And it’s no wonder – they’ve had lots of time to perfect their skills. Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded the winery more than 128 years ago – in 1870!This Chardonnay is named ‘Wild Ferment’ because of the use of a natural or ‘wild yeast’ ferment. Instead of adding packaged yeast, the pressed juice is allowed to slowly ferment in stainless steel with the indigenous vineyard yeasts in the area. The result is a complex aroma of spiced apple, pear and toasty lees. These notes are echoed in the rich, medium bodied palate, along with honey, mineral, herbs, nectarine skin and ashy lees. The mouthfeel is creamy, yet it finishes crisp. Very unique and different. Try with a seafood risotto.Check out www.ccltd.ca/winesofchile for details on next week’s Wines of Chile tasting and dinner event.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) ChileWhite WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
