Errázuriz MAX Pinot Noir 2017 (90 WA)
“A restrained red with moderate alcohol and very good freshness. After destemming and crushing, it fermented in stainless steel and then aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, 15% of them new. It has some iron-like aromas of fresh blood and red berries and a tasty, medium-bodied palate.”
Maximiano Errazuriz founded Errazuriz in 1870 in the foothills of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Andes Mountains and the Western Hemisphere. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and cool 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. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick.
