Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay MAX is a pretty, fresh, crisp effort that has plenty of minerality in its green citrus and lychee-like fruit. It’s medium-bodied, clean, and refreshing, with notable purity of fruit. Inner quote mark (3/2018)

There is so much wine here especially at the reasonable of a price. It is a wine of subtlety, complexity and length. I should not be surprised, Errauriz has been making great wines for a very, very long time. They were the winery that first developed vineyards the coastal region of Aconcagua. Cool, foggy coastal vineyards planted on stony loamy soils. The wine is medium full bodied with nice texture, there is a creamy roundness that transitions to a cool crisp finish. Cool and ripe is the best way to describe the fruit. It is cool pear and citrus zest, lemon, tangerine and ruby grapefruit. The soils impart a subtle minerality the peaks through on the finish. This wine makes me think of a cross between Burgundy and Oregon, the focus, energy and minerality as Burgundy and the weight and cool exoticness of fruit as Oregon Chardonnay. What a treat.

A do-a-little-of-everything chardonnay that does the right things well. Crisp and clean, but with a nice hit of round fruit on the nose that comes from the warm apple notes on the palate. There's a zippy salinity through the whole thing that ends in a zesty lemon curd. Stoney towards the back and weighty body. This bottling has a strong coastal vibe befitting its pacific origin. Great Value.

Errazuriz Chardonnay first came to my attention when their high-end Pizarras bottling started notching Grand Cru caliber reviews. Trying it, our team was floored by how good the wine was for the price. This "Max" bottling echoes that experience — it is also a must-try Chardonnay that over-delivers in a massive way, but does so at an everyday price. Clean, fresh, and detailed, there's great notes of citrus and stone fruit with a texture and weight reminiscent of Chablis. It doesn't show a hint of its age and develops particularly well with a bit of air. It has quickly become my new house white and I doubt we'll see much more at this kind of pricing.
