About this Product

"A Super Chilean along the lines of a top Bordeaux. Chile's greatest red wine." - Forbes

This is the Viña Errázuriz’s flagship wine, named in honor of Don Maximiano Errázuriz, who created the winery in 1870 in the heart of the Aconcagua Valley.Today, we commemorate Viña Errázuriz’s 150 years with an anniversary edition of Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve 2017. The vines have an average 30 years in age. The region has a long dry season with moderately warm summer days cooled by the soft evening breezes that enter the valley from the Pacific Ocean.

About Chile

Chile’s central valleys, sheltered by the costal ranges, and in some parts climbing the eastern slopes of the Andes, remain relatively warm and dry. The conditions are ideal for producing concentrated, full-bodied, aromatic reds rich in black and red fruits. The eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry—is home to intense red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

The Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys specialise in Cabernet and Bordeaux Blends as well as Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully for decades.

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
