Errazuriz Max Reserva Carmenere 2017
This wine shows an intense ruby red colour with violet hues. A spicy character predominates on the nose, with aromas that remind of black pepper and paprika, all followed by notes of figs and plums, as well as subtle touches of black olives. The aging in barrel added harmonious notes of coffee and black chocolate to this blend of aromas.
100% Carmenere. Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vina Errazuriz in 1870 in the Valle de Aconcagua, 62 miles north of the capital city, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers, and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, his descendents strive to build on his legacy, locating ideal vineyard sites, planting new varieties and realizing techniques to capture the Aconcagua Valley's perfect conditions.
