Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2011
This Casablanca Valley Chardonnay was hard to resist - being of good provenance and marketed at a good price point. The nose has a strong citrus (grapefruit) notes with a hint of quince. On entry, there is anise, more grapefruit and cake spice; finish is warm and long. Typical of the region but more interesting. 88 points.
External Reviews for Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment
Pretty floral and spice aromatics evolve into citrus with a drying acidity, making this dry Chenin Blanc a perfect match for Mexican, Thai, and everything in between. When you don’t know what you are having for dinner, this is your wine. Food pairing: poultry, seafood, spicy foods, pasta Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp
This is a young wine with some bitter almond flavors and a taut, nervy character. The wine is tight with green apple acidity showing through. Give it four years and it will be a rich, fruit-and-spice flavored wine.

The 2011 Clos Le Vigneau, from a more challenging vintage, is just as good. Aromatics of spring flowers, poached pears, honeyed melon and some buttered citrus jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, very pure, fresh and nicely concentrated wine, which is the epitome of a dry Chenin Blanc meant to go with a cornucopia of cuisines.
