Errazuriz Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve
Since its foundation in 1870, Viña Errázuriz has been devoted to a philosophy of excellence and innovation. Harvest after harvest, the most prestigious international critics have recognized its quality with high scores, making it a benchmark for quality and a global image of fine wines from Chile.
The season was slightly warm, with very low precipitation and ended rather cold, which favoured the correct development of the vines and tremendous balance in the ripening of very healthy grapes. The result is wines with excellent concentration and complexity. Our MAX vineyards benefitted from the age of the vines and a precision irrigation system, which allowed us to withstand a particularly dry year. Fortunately, the heatwave that affected Chile’s Central Valley was not as harsh in the Aconcagua Valley, which favoured the fruit, delivered smooth and ripe tannins, enabling us to produce complex and elegant wines that are well defined in their varietal profile.
Intense purple in colour with a violet hue.
The 2019 vintage of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve captivates with aromas of red and black fruits accompanied by notes of dark chocolate and a bit of dill and cedar.
The palate recalls ripe cherries and blueberries accompanied by chocolate and a bit of rosemary. This is a juicy wine with an ample and deep palate and fine-grained tannins that lend tremendous structure and persistence on the palate.
