91pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The pretty affordable 2018 Max Reserva Chardonnay from Aconcagua has moderate alcohol and remarkable acidity and freshness. The full clusters were pressed and the juice let to settle, and then it fermented in French oak barrels (20% new), where the wine matured for ten months. All of these wines have a very clean and precise profile, very integrated oak, moderate alcohol and aromas and flavors in the citrus range, with floral undertones. The palate is medium-bodied with clarity and a long, tasty, almost salty finish. Drink date: 2020-2023." Feb 2020

 

Winery:  "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 aging 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 flavors and crisp acidity. In the mouth, this wine is elegant and impressive, showing good acidity, structure and the fine balance characteristic of our terroir."
