MAX Sauvignon Blanc

Aconcagua Costa

The grapes for the Max Reserva Sauvignon Blanc come from the Manzanar vineyard, located just 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. The vines are planted 328-656 feet above sea level. Manzanar\'s schist soils enable the roots to grow deep and expore, leading to balanced vine growth and optimum quality grapes, while the cool climate fosters the development of high acidity and the expression of mineral notes. 

The fruit is hand-picked in the mornings and carefully transported to the cellar in small, 14-kg boxes. The grapes are then destemmed, crushed and pressed to maintain their natural acidity. Fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks, using yeasts that are specifically selected to develop aromatic compounds under low temperature fermentations. The wine is left in contact with fine lees for three months before bottling, in order to develop a soft texture and volume on the palate.

Pale yellow in color, the Max Reserva Sauvignon Blanc offers tremendous aromatic intensity. It's dominated by citrusy lime and grapefruit flavors, with a subtle side note of green chili pepper. Fresh, mineral and juicy on the palate, with a long finish and refreshing acidity.
