In a remote site in the Maipo Valley Eduardo Chadwick also makes (sadly in highly limited quantities) the eponymous Viñedo Chadwick in honour of his late pioneering father Alfonso. This wine is utterly iconic, winning the Berlin Tasting with Seña back in 2004 above a ferocious line-up of First Growths and SuperTuscans, whilst the 2014 was the first Chilean wine to be awarded a perfect score by James Suckling. 2019 has also given us a star in the making, with 99 points from Suckling who praises the wine as "Subtle and very beautiful ... and so fine-textured with superb tannins that provide multi-layers on the palate". Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with just a hint of Petit Verdot, this wine is infamously difficult to get hold of, BUT we have been able to get a tiny allocation, so do let me know if you're interested!
“Subtle and very beautiful with currants, tarragon, basil and rose petals in the aromas. It’s full-bodied, yet agile and so fine-textured with superb tannins that provide multi-layers on the palate. It’s refined, yet powerful at the end. Suggests greatness and longevity. Lots of blackcurrants, stones and violets in the after taste. Cabernet sauvignon with a touch of petit verdot. This needs three or four years to show its true greatness."99pts James Suckling
The 2019 Viñedo Chadwick is a classical Cabernet Sauvignon from Puente Alto, one of the best zones within Maipo. It's from a moderately warm vintage that delivered a wine with only 13% alcohol and good freshness. It contains some 3% Petit Verdot. The vines were planted in 1992, and its gapes fermented in equal parts in stainless steel and concrete or troncoconic vats. Three-fourths of the wine matured in new barriques and the rest in Stockinger foudres for 22 months, including time for the malolactic fermentation. I was truly impressed by this vintage, especially because of its elegance and freshness. There are showy aromas reminiscent of tangerine and flowers, ripe red berries (rather than black) and a spicy twist from the oak but nothing herbal or balsamic that one could expect given the moderate ripeness. The grapes were picked very early, and the wine follows the path of the 2016, the coolest vintage so far, with juicy fruit, elegance and great tension. This feels exceptional and transcends the style of the year. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled the 25th of January 2021. 97pts Luis Gutierrez WA
“Grippy, fresh and focused, it’s a cuvée where you barely notice the 75% new oak, such is its understated concentration. Mint, dried herb, bramble and cassis flavours are complemented by granular tannins and acidity levels that are more reminiscent of Italy than Chile. Subtle, perfumed, harmonious and beguiling."97pts Tim Atkin MW
