Four-vintage Viñedo Chadwick dinner – Friday 26th July

When Viñedo Chadwick took the honours at the famous 2004 Berlin Tasting, coming out on top at a blind tasting featuring such luminaries as Sassicaia and Solaia, Lafite and Latour, it marked a certain coming of age.

The wine was the vision of Eduardo Chadwick, who took over from his pioneering father Alfonso at the family estate in the early 1990s. Among his first acts was to ask his father’s permission to convert his beloved polo field into a vineyard. Eduardo saw the enormous potential for growing great Cabernet here on the north bank of the Maipo River, at 650m altitude, with a temperate, almost Mediterranean climate, high-quality gravel soils, and cool morning breezes blowing in from the nearby Andes.

The 15ha of Cabernet vines were planted on the polo field in 1992, the year before Alfonso died. Seven years later came the debut vintage; in the same year, the family re-erected the polo goal on the site, to stand guard over the ripening grapes.

Over the subsequent two decades, small, incremental changes have further refined what is now the family’s flagship wine: a small parcel of Petit Verdot was planted to add more complexity; another 6.4ha of Cabernet vines were replanted using massal selection; the vineyard rows have been reoriented east–west, resulting in even greater fruit definition; grapes are picked earlier for freshness while in the winery, the level of new oak has been toned down, via larger foudres for ageing. The result is a wine of finesse, elegance and distinction that many argue stands as Chile’s greatest Cabernet.

We are delighted, then, to welcome Thomas Beaucousin, commercial director of Viñedo Chadwick for a very special dinner showcasing four vintages of the wine, going back over the last 15 years, complemented by a menu specially created by Chef Pau.
