Reviews of purchase "Don Maximiano" Founder's Reserve, Valle de Aconcagua DO, 2017
The wine is dark purple-red color.
Elegant, subtle, wonderfully balanced wine with a flexible texture gives a tight, fresh taste with rounded tannins and a juicy fruit-based, which enrich the tone spicy spices (cloves, cinnamon). Wine leaves a pleasant lingering aftertaste with hints of ripe berries.
Against the background of intense flavors of cherry, blueberry and black currant in the process of aeration gradually appearing shades of chocolate, black pepper, truffle, cedar and balsamic notes.
Most harmoniously "Don Maximiano" combined with sausages, mature cheeses, venison and red meat. We recommend to try the wine with grilled marinated lamb ribs or beef fillet with blue cheese sauce.
Juicy, bright wine "Don Maximiano" Founder's Reserve is made from four varieties of grapes grown in the vineyards "Don Maximiano" and "Max", located in the Valle de Aconcagua. This area is characterized by long, dry summers with moderate warm days and cooled soft breeze blowing from the Pacific Ocean, in the evenings. Soil vineyards vary in composition. Thus, the soil area "Don Maximian" covered with a thin layer of granite dust, and in the vineyards "Max" are alluvial, with a high content of stones. Both types of soils provide good drainage and stimulate the natural balance of the vegetative growth of vines.
The grapes for the creation of "Don Maximian" Founders Reserva collected in small boxes and transported to the winery, where the double-sorted and cleaned of stems, leaves and berries defective. The wort was fermented at a small pellet in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 24-30 ° C. However, three times a day produced wort pumping. Follow maceration lasts from 16 to 35 days at a temperature of 24-28 ° C depending on the vintage. Excerpt wine harvest in 2010 was carried out for 22 months and took place in French oak barrels, of which 81% were new. Malolactic fermentation in barrels also proceeded. The wine has excellent potential for long-term storage, only increasing their complexity in the bottle.
