More information on wine critics and ratings

Purplish ruby-red in colour, with a seductive nose that offers black fruit such as blueberries and blackberries along with a subtle floral touch that recalls lavender, all framed by sweet spices such as cloves and nutmeg from the oak. A light balsamic touch increases complexity.

Fine tannins lend a velvety mouthfeel, while fresh acidity adds a fruity firmness.

The flavours confirm that this is a nicely ripe and tremendously friendly wine that will continue to gain complexity over time, while its bright acidity predicts excellent longevity in the bottle

Origins The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives… Read more

Bright violet. Spicy and energetic on the nose, displaying fresh black and blue fruit scents and a hint of olive. Gently sweet and lithe in style, offering zesty blackberry and boysenberry flavors that deepen as the wine opens up. Shows good breadth and power on the persistent, smoke-tinged finish, where gentle tannins lend shape and grip. -- Josh Raynolds

James Suckling (JS) : 89 Points (2013)
Aromas of spice, blackberry and black pepper follow through to a full body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2012)
The 2012 Max Reserva Syrah is produced from grapes grown on volcanic and slate soils and has a smoky character mixing the aromas from the toasty barrels and those from the grape skins. The wines in this Max Reserva line seem to have a more commercial profile, with marked notes of oak, a soft palate and good balance, which makes them easy to drink. Drink now-2016.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2012)
Berry aromas are a touch dusty and floral on the nose, with hints of earth and cedar. On the palate, this wine is bright and balanced, with fresh acidity. Rich berry, cassis and spice flavors finish agile and long. Drink through 2016.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17 Points (2011)
Tasted Sept 2013 - Creamy luxurious Syrah. Fresh and dry finish. Very subtle. Really excellent, but subtle.
