Errazuriz Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Bright ruby red colour with violet hues. On the nose, aromas of red fruits, tobacco, cherries and a soft spicy note, along with dill and peppermint, are all framed by elegant notes of nuts, chocolate and cloves. The palate delivers sour cherry, raspberry and a fresh blueberry note, followed by chocolate and nutmeg. Round, juicy and full, with refreshing acidity, and delightfully soft edges that give a pleasant and long finish.

Vineyard
The grapes for our Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
primarily come from our Max vineyards in the Aconcagua
Valley. Located in the interior of the valley, the vineyard soils
have a predominantly silty texture and are of colluvial origin.
The special conditions of nutrition and drainage of the
diverse soils help control plant vigor, producing balanced
fruit loads with small bunches and berries.
Winemaking
Grapes were handpicked, sorted, destemmed, crushed and
placed in open top stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The
grapes had a total maceration for 18-25 days. Afterwards,
the wine was kept in French oak barrels, 25% of them new,
for malolactic fermentation and ageing for 12 months.
Vintages
The challenging vintage of 2016 performed different scenarios through the season, with a cool
spring and a warmer than average summer. A rainy and cool October was followed by pleasant
spring days in Novmeber, promoting a healthy flowering and fruit set. At the beginning of the
summer temperatures gradually increased, reaching higher than average January temperatures.
February was warm, with sunny weather interspered with cool morning fog, prevailing through to
the end of the growing season. All of these conditions delivered wines of outstanding vivacity and
character.
