Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve 2013 was crafted aiming
to preserve freshness and capturing the distinct fruit flavours
and textures of this sensational vintage. The resulting wine is
fresh, layered with distinctive minerality and nuance. The
refined tannins support a delicious texture and, prolonged by
a lingering finish, provide great pleasure even at this early
stage of its life.
Vineyard
The Don Maximiano vineyard is located in the Aconcagua
Valley and the oldest among them are the Max I, Max II and
Max V blocks. The 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
Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère vines were planted in
1978 and 1993, respectively, while the Petit Verdot was
planted in 1999. The three vineyards that contribute grapes
for Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve are planted on north
or northeast facing hillsides with 5°–25° of slope. Precision in
farming allows us to identify homogenous sectors within each
vineyard and harvest these individually according to the
progress of the berries in each lot.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and the must was fermented in small stainless steel vats at
temperatures ranging from 24°- 28°C. The wine was then aged for 22 months in French oak
barrels (65% new).
Vintages
A superb growing season characterised by its cool conditions, particulary in the northern and
coastal areas of Chile. Spring was marked by cool temperatures and rains concentrated in the
month of October that recharged the soils and provides enough water for the plants to grow well
early on. Elegance and balance are the key descriptors of this season, with fine grain tannins,
great colours and long finish. Carmenère stands out for its spicy notes and elegance.
