Chilean wine estate Viñedo Chadwick has announced the release of its Vertical Library Edition, showcasing the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages.

Located in Puente Alto D.O. in the foothills of the Andes, 670 meters (2,200 feet) above sea level, the terroir is known for cabernet sauvignon.

“To be able to share the Viñedo Chadwick wines with the world, in honor of my grandfather, is a gift in itself. To be able to handpick three library vintages for this limited-edition case has been an even bigger pleasure,” says Viñedos Familia Chadwick SpA Board Member Magui Chadwick. “This limited-release vertical case is a rare opportunity to savor the graceful aging that is innate and unique to each extraordinary vintage within it.”


These three vintages are all expressions of the same terroir. Each of these three vintages has its own nuances, the company says: “2009 is a warm vintage full of ripe, red fruit; 2010 shows hints of balsamic, rosemary and bay leaf; and 2011 has an unusually long growing season that resulted in the wine being effortless and silky, with a lengthy finish.”

The release of this vertical collection of Viñedo Chadwick 2009, 2010 and 2011 is the chance to experience terroir for cabernet sauvignon via three different years that ranged from warm to mild to cool.  


Regarding the 2009 Viñedo Chadwick, Winemaker Francisco Baettig says, “It’s a magnificent example of a wine from a warm year with complex layers of aroma. It’s concentrated and well balanced with beautifully structured tannins, a texture that envelops the mouth and a very long finish.” The 2010, meanwhile, “is an easygoing and expressive wine with the finesse brought by the long, slow aging process and extraordinary depth.” Finally, the 2011 “is an example of the wine from a cool year, that offers elegance and a touch of sweetness from the oak. A delicate, svelte red with excellent concentration, tension and juice, it rolls over the tongue with silky grace.”  

Viñedo Chadwick’s limited Vertical Library Edition: 2009, 2010 & 2011 releases worldwide on La Place de Bordeaux, and is imported into the U.S. by Shaw-Ross.
