Errazuriz Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve 2017

“Of a beautiful ruby red color with violet highlights, the 2017 vintage of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve
captivates with aromas reminiscent of red fruits such as cherries and raspberries. Further back some nice notes of
cocoa and clove appear, culminating with a slight oral hint that reminds of violets. Aligned with what is
perceived on the nose, the palate oers cherries, raspberries and cassis avors, plus the sweet notes of cocoa and
clove. Of a wide entrance, it is a generous wine, with good tension and juiciness that provide freshness, framed by
mature tannins that marvelously surround the mouth, along with a long and very pleasant persistence.”

Thee Don Maximiano Estate is located in the Aconcagua Valley, and planted to
Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and
Malbec vines that average 30 years in age. e vines thrive on hillsides up to 600
meters above sea level, 60 kilometres from the Pacic Ocean on the southern bank
of the Aconcagua River. e region has a long dry season with moderately warm
summer days cooled by the soft evening breezes that enter the valley from the
Pacific Ocean.
The estate is divided into a series of vineyard blocks, and the three that contribute
grapes for Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve are Max I, Max II, and Max V,
that total about 100 hectares of grapes carefully selected for this wine.
Max I block is planted on a northeast-facing hillside with 5°-30° of slope. On the
highest part of the hillside, the weathering of the intrusive igneous rock produced
shallow soils with sandy loam texture and few stones. The lower part of the hill has
coarse alluvium with soils that go up to 2 meters deep of sandy loam texture with
stoniness that can reach up to 50%.
Max II block is facing northwest with slopes varying from 5% to 20% and there
are soils from 50 to 120 centimeters deep, with sandy loam to clay loam texture
and high stoniness content varying from 30% to 70%, lying over coarse alluvium.
Max V block is located on the south bank of the Aconcagua River in the alluvial
plain. The soil is deep with clay to clay loam texture and high stone content of up to
80%. The subsoil is a coarse-grained alluvial terrace of the Aconcagua River, rich
in well-rounded pebbles
