REGION: Aconcagua Valley, Chile
INFO: The grapes are sourced from the Aconcagua Costa vineyard located 12 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. Planted by Viña Errázuriz in 2005 and 2009, the soil is composed by a thin layer of loamy texture and placed on a base of clay and metamorphic rock (slate/schist), providing the mineral notes present in the wines that are grown in these vineyards.
Grapes were handpicked in the early morning between February 19th to March 6th and carefully transported to the winery, where they were whole-cluster pressed and cold decanted in stainless steel tanks. The juice was fermented in used French oak barrels for 15 to 20 days, and then underwent 45% malolactic fermentation. Then the wine was aged for 11 months in used French oak barrels.
The palate is dominated by a citrus profile, accompanied by soft notes of tropical fruits and pastries. It is fresh, deep and long on the palate, it shows tension and creaminess, a delicate balance that gives this wine great persistence and elegance.
Three miniatures of Fonseca port, including one 5cl bottle each of the following: Siroco white port (best served chilled), Bin 27 reserve port and the 2014 Late Bottled Vintage, all presented in a lovely wooden box with a sliding lid.
