Your first take on this heavily oaked, natural-yeast Chard is that it's a three-alarm smoke alert. Few, if any, Chilean Chardonnays are this overtly oaky. But the wood is of high quality, and the more time you give it the more you find apple, citrus and spice. Yes, it's still resiny. But the balance and natural character of the wine are very good. Best if you like a New World style with plenty of barrel character.

Green-tinged yellow. Strikingly complex aromas of spiced pear, apple, floral honey and smoky lees. Fleshy orchard fruit and orange flavors are given spine by tangy minerals and gain an intriguing herbal quality on the back end. The mineral note lingers on the long, juicy finish.

Green-gold. Smoky melon and peach aromas display an intriguing pungency and good depth. Rich and smooth but lively, with fresh orchard and pit fruit flavors, medium weight and good finishing grip. Leaves a strong impression of honeydew behind.

The light gold-colored 2007 Chardonnay Wild Ferment is 100% barrel-fermented but with only 17% new oak where the wine remained for 10 months. It has an expressive bouquet of buttered toast, spiced apple, and white peach leading to a surprisingly elegant, medium-bodied Chardonnay with tangy flavors and a long, pure finish. It can be enjoyed over the next three years. Errazuriz has been making impressive strides under the inspired leadership of the soft-spoken Eduardo Chadwick. He has gathered a superb team of viticultural and winemaking talent for Errazuriz as well as his luxury wines, Sena and Vinedo Chadwick.

Rich barrel aromas control the nose, and the offshooting toast, vanilla and roasted nut scents are familiar and controlled. The flavors are of tempered citrus and nectarine, while the finish has a creamy character along with a breeze of the tropics. Smooth and round mouthfeel.

Very juicy and fresh, with toasted apple, piecrust, hazelnut and butter notes that stay focused on the friendly finish. A crowd-pleaser.

Winemaker's Notes:

Mittelgelb. Einnehmende Nasenaromatik mit einerseits Düfte nach Zitrusfrüchte erinnernd, auch Melone, anderseits feine Röstaromen, Toastbrot. Fülliger Gaumen mit einer typischen Chardonnay-Aromatik, reife Birnen, Passionsfrucht, buttrige Noten, aromatisch bis ins Finale.
