Description:
The flagship wine from the Don Maximiano Estate it is complex with beautifully ripe fruit, smooth tannins, great concentration and a long finish.

A deep reddish-violet colour, our Don Maximiano 2011 features red fruit aromas of cherries and strawberries, along with notes of cassis, plums and figs.

Its fruity character is enveloped by emerging aromas that recall cloves, cinnamon, and liquorice along with a hint of toasted chestnut.

Good amplitude and great depth result in a balanced wine with fine-grained tannins.

The palate recalls the fruit aromas perceived on the nose, accompanied by notes of cocoa and coffee, and touches of pencil lead and truffle.

The acidity lends a juicy mouthfeel that gives way to a lingering finish with excellent persistence.

Overall, it is a wine with tremendous complexity and elegance that presages a very favourable evolution in the bottle.

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec.

Producer Information

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano 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. Eduardo is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernisation of the winemaking technology at this historic Estate whilst maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality, Errazuriz has built a reputation as the "Premier Family Wine Estate of Chile".
Errazuriz's philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, "From the best land, the best wine." Vina Errazuriz believe in the concept of 'terroir' and strive to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the winemaking process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua and Casablanca valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity.
