Errazuriz MAX Pinot Noir 2018 (90 WA) (90+)
“The 2018 Max Reserva Pinot Noir was produced with gapes from Aconcagua and has 13% alcohol and very good freshness. 2018 was a very good year in the zone, and the grapes were very healthy. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, 15% of them new. It follows the Max Reserva style of approachability, with clean varietal aromas and a touch of creamy oak, making it a slightly more commercial range. It’s quite primary and young, with good ripeness, round tannins and juicy fruit.”
Hailing from a daring planting nearly 15 years ago of vineyards fewer than ten miles from the Pacific Ocean, MAX Pinot Noir is a stunning expression of Pinot Noir that we believe makes it one of the highest quality, most interesting, and most original Pinot Noirs available at its price from anywhere in the world.
