Errazuriz Max VIII 2018

Named for the 8 Max Vineyards where the grapes for this
Mediterranean blend are sourced, Max VIII is a lively fresh
wine with notes of violets, red fruits and a balanced juicy finish

Errazuriz Max VIII 2018

This blend shows an intense and deep ruby red colour with
violet hues. On the nose it displays floral notes reminiscent of
violets, then the red fruit appears, raspberry and
pomegranate, all elegantly accompanied by soft notes of fine
pastry and nuts. The palate is balanced and juicy, with round
and elegant tannins. It is lively and has tension, which
predicts excellent ageing potential. Very long and persistent
on the palate.
Vineyard
The grapes for MAX VIII come from a selection of the
different vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley, where climatic
conditions, soil, topography, exposure and height vary thanks
to the transversal position of the valley in the Chilean
geography. The climate goes from a cool climate, close to the
coast (40 km) to a Mediterranean climate, more inland from
the valley (70 km) thanks to the presence of the cool breezes
from the Pacific Ocean that finally decreases at the foot of
the Andes Mountains. The soils of the vineyards change their
texture due to their different geological origins, in a range
that goes from alluvial soils formed by deposits of the
Aconcagua River, to colluvial soils originated from rocks from
the slopes. The special conditions of nutrition and drainage of
these different soils help to develop the varieties of this
blend, producing balanced grapes for this wine.
Winemaking
Harvest by hand. Cold maceration at 8 -12 °C, 3 - 7 days in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic
Fermentation at 23 - 28¼C, 5 -10 days in stainless steel tanks plus 10 - 30 days of extended grape
solids contact period. Aging in 225L oak barrels for 20 months.
Vintage
As opposed to last year, during this season the climate conditions favoured a higher productivity
in the vineyards. Temperatures behaved within the historical frames and the season ended with
mild conditions, thus allowing for a very balanced ripeness and harvest, positive in aspects of
health, and generous in highly complex flavours.
