Maxwell, Ellen Street Shiraz, 2011
COLOUR AND NOSE
The colour of cherry red. This wine shows aromas of coffee and vanilla bean, violets, glacé fruits and cherries.
Flavours of plum, chocolate, and blackberry are immediate in the first sip. This Shiraz shows clean minerality from the limestone sub soils and rich earthy characters through the middle palate offering intense concentration of fruit with soft velvety tannin to complete this wine.
Given satisfactory cellaring conditions, it is expected this wine will drink particularly well at 6 to 8 years of age.
