Vinification Details

  • The grapes were hand picked in April and taken in bins to the winery, where they were destemmed, crushed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was carried out at 24 - 28° C (75 -82° F) with two pumpovers daily. The post-fermentation maceration lasted 10 to 25 days, depending on the development of each individual lot. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for approximately 8 months to round out the wine and add a sweet sensation to the palate.

History

  • The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernisation of the winemaking technology at this historic Estate whilst maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality, Errazuriz has built a reputation as the "Premier Family Wine Estate of Chile".

Regional Information

  • Our Merlot Estate 2018 comes from our vineyards in the Valle de Curicó, where the regional climate features rainy winters and dry summers. The vineyard is planted in the deep clay-loam soils of our Valle Curicó terroir. The vertically trained, drip-irrigated vines allow us to maintain strict control in the vineyard to produce low, balanced yields

Acidic finish; OK with a curry.

2 stars

Smooth enough to start with but has a very sharp, almost acidic finish. Drinkable with a curry or a spicy pizza but not by itself nor with any food that has subtle flavours. Note: This review is based on the 2019 vintage whereas the previous reviews are nearly 5 or more years old and will be on different vintages.

A Merlot with character

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

This richly coloured and fruited red wine from the consistent Errazuriz stable is loaded with soft plum and black cherry fruit with a warming lick of spice on the finish. Pretty good for a tenner but excellent value when on offer and great with bangers 'n' mash, steak pie and similarly warming Autumn and Winter fare.

A good guzzler!

Review from tesco.com

This is one of our red house wines. It has ripe damsons and is smooth on the palate. Goes well with red and whie meat as well as spicy stews. It also drinks very well on its own.
