2012 Max Reserva

The schist soils on which the Max Reserva Sauvignon Blanc grapes are planted enable the roots to grow deep and explore, leading to balanced vine growth and optimum quality grapes, which the cool climate fosters the devolpment of high acidity and the expression of mineral notes. A greenish-yellow color, Errazuriz's Sauvignon Blanc Max Reserva 2013 delivers surprisingly intense herbal aromas thanks to the cold year, with standout tomato leaf and green chillies mingled with citrus aromas such as lime and grapefruit rind and a subtle hint of white flowers. The palate is tense, with a notable acidity that is refreshing and nervy. Medium-bodied and well structured, with a mineral mouthfeel from the wine's unique terroir.

Critical Acclaim

."This is so salty and lean it recalls Fino Sherry, though it comes directly from the Chilean coast. The texture is riveting, tense and nervous, perfect for a sea bass ceviche. "
