So just recently we had the opportunity to attend the 10th anniversary of “the Berlin Tasting:, a legendary and ground breaking tasting that showcased the wines of Chile like never before, beating out iconic wines such as Chateau Lafite and Chateau Margaux. As a nod to this accomplishment and this event, the founder of which is Eduardo Chadwick of Viña Errazuriz, I’d like to share the wine we were greeted with hat evening that was absolutely delicious.

My wine pick this week is the Viña Errazuriz Chardonnay Wild Ferment 2012 from the Casablanca Valley in Chile.

So wild ferment means that the winery or winemaker uses native yeasts. These yeasts end up contributing more complexity to the wine. It was aged “sur lie” for 10 months in Oak barrels… it was seductively intense, complex on the nose, with pineapple and peach notes and a creaminess on the palate, with hunts of toast and nuts… Crisp acidity! I really enjoyed this wine.
