Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hours before serving.

Don Maximiano Errázuriz is said to have ridden on horseback for two days from Santiago to arrive in the remote Aconcagua valley where he later founded his namesake winery. Today the estate is considered one of Chile’s finest producers, regularly producing wines that rank amongst the world’s finest. Key to their success is the relentless focus on terroir, a quality inherited from Don Maximiano himself who worked by the mantra, “From the best land, the best wine.”

Now in the hands of the fourth generation of the family, Eduardo Chadwick, the winery focuses on crafting iconic fine wines like this Carmenere. It is crafted with select grapes from the best plots in their Max V vineyard which were planted in 1992 and 1993. The well-draining alluvial soils here and the proximity to the Pacific Ocean help to produce wonderfully ripe yet balanced fruit. Yields are kept low and the grapes are harvested late to ensure optimum maturity.

After being harvested by hand the fruit is fermented in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, with the young wine left to age in 70% new French oak barrels for 22 months. After another year of ageing in the bottle, the wine is finally deemed ready for release. Powerful and opulent in style, this is a big, bold red wine that will benefit from extended cellaring or pairing with hearty red meat dishes should you choose to enjoy it now.
