Producer Information

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.

Grapes

Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Grenache, Mourvedre

Production

The grapes for MAX VIII come from a selection of the different vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley, where climatic conditions, soil, topography, exposure and height vary thanks to the transversal position of the valley in the Chilean geography. The climate goes from a cool climate, close to the coast (40 km) to a Mediterranean climate, more inland from the valley (70 km) thanks to the presence of the cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean that finally decreases at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The soils of the vineyards change their texture due to their different geological origins, in a range that goes from alluvial soils formed by deposits of the Aconcagua River, to colluvial soils originated from rocks from the slopes. The special conditions of nutrition and drainage of these different soils help to develop the varieties of this blend, producing balanced grapes for this wine.

45% Syrah, 15% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Carmenere, 8% Grenache, 7% Mourvedre.

Harvest by hand. Cold maceration at 8 -12 °C, 3 - 7 days in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic Fermentation at 23 - 28¼C, 5 -10 days in stainless steel tanks plus 10 - 30 days of extended grape solids contact period. Aging in 225L oak barrels for 20 months.

Tasting Notes

This blend shows an intense and deep ruby red colour with violet hues. On the nose it displays floral notes reminiscent of violets, then the red fruit appears, raspberry and pomegranate, all elegantly accompanied by soft notes of fine pastry and nuts. The palate is balanced and juicy, with round and elegant tannins. It is lively and has tension, which predicts excellent ageing potential. Very long and persistent on the palate.

Drink with grilled lamb kebabs with onion salsa.
