Maximus Shiraz

2018 Maximus Shiraz

Eden Valley

Tasting Notes

The name Maximus, refers to the quality of the wine resulting from the intensity of effort put into all aspects of its production. The Maximus is only produced in exceptional years when all aspects of making this wine come together.

This wine is made from premium single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes hand-picked. It has deep, brooding, inky colour with rich, complex aromas of plums and fine grained vanillin oak. The palate is big and richly flavoured, beautifully rounded and has a lingering, tight, dry, gorgeous finish, which leaves the palate asking for more.

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested, fermented with extended skin contact then gently pressed in our traditional basket press before maturing in a combination of new and pre-used French oak barrels.

Cellaring

This wine is very youthful therefore it will continue to develop and grow in complexity for many years to come (at least 3-5 years) when it will develop into a sensational, classic Eden Valley Shiraz that will live for at least another decade thereafter.

Food Suggestion

This wine is robust enough to be a great accompaniment to all but the spiciest of food dishes, be they vegetarian or meat based.
