Errazuriz Max Reserva Chardonnay 2020
The Errazuriz Max Reserva Chardonnay is a premium example of the grape sourced from the cool climate vineyards of the Aconcagua Valley, which produce wonderfully ripe fruit with lovely balancing acidity. The grapes were handpicked early in the morning and whole-cluster pressed. The must was cold decanted in stainless steel tanks in pursuit of greater clarity. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels, 10% new and the rest of second or third use. Approximately 30% of the final blend underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine stayed in touch with its finest lees while ageing for 10 months in barrels. This Chardonnay will delight you with its bright acidity and vivid aromas. Floral aromas of ripe apple, apricot, vanilla and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavours and crisp acidity. In the mouth, this wine is elegant and impressive, showing good acidity and structure.
