Errazuriz, Las Pizarras Pinot Noir, Aconcagua 2020


Case Format: 6x75cl

Since its founding in 1870, Viña Errazuriz has had a singular vision: to produce world-class Chilean wines that rival the very best. This tradition of quality continues today under the leadership of Eduardo Chadwick. The Errazuriz Las Pizarras Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from the Viña Errazuriz Aconcagua Costa Estate and specifically from blocks that have a significant component of metamorphic rock including slate (pizarras, in Spanish). Las Pizarras Pinot Noir is vibrant, its aroma is full of raspberries, rosehips, myrtle and an interesting spicy character. A few minutes after pouring, the different layers begin to emerge. Distinct aromas of wet stone, sweet spice and earthy characters transporting one to the place itself. In the palate, the wine is complex and well structured, it is decidedly forward and with fine, elegant tannins that are defined by the slate and schist soils. A wine of great perseverance, with elegant tannins delivering a long and persistent finish.



Luis Gutiérrez

The grapes for the 2020 Las Pizarras Pinot Noir were harvested early in February and fermented with 15% full clusters to lift up the wine, and the élevage was in 55% new barrels and was extended to 13 months. It has 13% alcohol, very good freshness, a pH of 3.55, which is low (but still higher than in cooler years), and a medium body. Often in the warm years, what I find is that in the shorter cycle the tannins dont achieve the same ripeness and elegance as in the cooler years. But they have adapted their irrigation, avoid notes of very ripe fruit and are more careful with the extraction. Nowadays, a warm and dry vintage is much better managed than 20 years ago. 6,600 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2021.

Alejandro Iglesias

A Burgundy-style Pinot Noir made by Francisco Baettig with grapes from a vineyard in Aconcagua Costa where the soils are rich in slate and iron, this wine is wild fermented, 10% with whole bunches, and aged in 300-litre barrels. The complex nose features sweet, smoky spices, rose, cherry and blood aromas, while on the palate it’s harmonious and fresh with compact tannins that channel the flow.
