Critical response

The Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutiérrez awarded the 2020 Viñedo Chadwick a score of 97-points and called it ‘a triumph over the natural conditions of the year’. He added that ‘it has good ripeness and an absence of herbal and minty aromas; the wine from older vines behaves better—the grapes ripen and the alcohol (with good management of the irrigation) with moderate yields produce this unique Cabernet’.

James Suckling gave it 98-points and described it as ‘ultra-fine and polished with a very precise, rather linear palate for cabernet’.

The wine also received 95-points from Jane Anson, who wrote in her tasting note: ‘I’m always a big fan of what they achieve here, and winemaker Francisco Baettig has done an excellent job of harnessing the potential of the site and its 30 year old vines’.

Fair value

The 2018 and 2019 vintages, which carry the same score, are available in the market for discounts of 14.4% and 21.2% respectively.

The 2008 also looks attractive, with 96-points and a Market Price of £2,221 per case.
