Sixty-five miles north of Santiago, Chile, Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Viña Errazuriz in the Aconcagua Valley in 1870. Recognizing that this valley, a semi-desert region where the hot dry summer days are cooled by afternoon Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, he sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. MAX Carménère is a wine made from hand-picked grapes, and with the high day-night temperature differences of the estate, ripening slows and helps create intensity of flavors and concentration. With firm, silky tannins and great balance, the wine is fresh and dry with medium-body and a subtle, fruity finish. Named by the Chilean government as “Winery of the Year” in 2008 and “Producer of the Year” at the International Wine & Spirits Competition, this is not a wine you want to miss.
