Three Sauvignon Blanc and three Shiraz.
(100% Sauvignon Blanc)
Intensely aromatic with abundant tropical fruit such as guava and passion fruit, perfectly balanced with the mineral notes and herbal tones so typical of premium Sauvignon.
The grapes were handpicked in the early morning and then transported to the winery, where 100% were destemmed, chilled, crushed, and pressed. To preserve the wine’s aromas, all of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures using yeasts specially selected to highlight aromatic compounds. The batches were aged on the lees for 3 months to enhance texture and volume on the palate.
The grapes for Sauvignon Blanc Max Reserva Aconcagua Costa 2011 were sourced from the Manzanar vineyard, located just 12km from the Pacific Ocean. This hillside estate is located 100-300 metres above sea level. The drip irrigated, vertically trained vines are planted in thin, loamy soil, 40-80cm deep and overlaying rocky-clay subsoil.
Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc.
Aconcagua Valley, Chile
Max Reserva Shiraz - *Awarded 4 Stars - Chilean Syrah: panel tasting results - Decanter, March 2012*
The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business.
This wine is gorgeous violet-ruby-red in colour. The nose offers a blend of fruits that recall blackberries and ripe plum, along with the contribution of the oak that expresses chocolate, incense, and some roasted aromas. The palate presents plenty of fibre and nerve, along with a very good structure and plenty of juiciness that lends a fresh sensation to this pleasingly persistent wine.
"Red and black berry, cherry, plum, prominent vanilla, raisin and chocolate bouquet. Nice minerality, refreshing acidity, high, ripe tannins and a long length. Integrated. Will improve." Decanter, March 2012
