Errazuriz Max Reserva Carmenere 2016

Aromas of red roasted pepper, tobacco, dill and mushrooms on the nose are complemented by a subtle note of blackberries and cherries. On the palate the wine shows fresh and delicate flavours of cherry and plum with a touch of spice, chocolate and roasted coffee beans. The wine is well balanced with mouthwatering acidity and round, soft tannins.

Aromas of red roasted pepper, tobacco, dill and mushrooms
on the nose are complemented by a subtle note of
blackberries and cherries. On the palate the wine shows fresh
and delicate flavours of cherry and plum with a touch of spice,
chocolate and roasted coffee beans. The wine is well
balanced with mouthwatering acidity and round, soft
tannins.
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 vigour, 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, 28% 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.
