William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like?

Available by the dozen
Case of 12
Harvested from the warm and sunny Deakin Estate vineyard at Red Cliffs near Mildura. Grapes are vinified in sweeping arm potter fermenters followed by malolactic. Close attention is paid to maintaining mild temperatures and gentle maceration, so that the tannin extractions can be perfectly judged and managed. After a year of maturation to soften and infuse supple oak character, the better components are selected for inclusion into the final wine. Blending and fining trials are undertaken to arrive at the optimal assemblage.
Deep red colour. Intense blackcurrant and blueberry aromas, cigar box and a touch of cinnamon. Heaps of berry fruit flavours on the palate, pliant tannins that bounce along with you, joined by a warm and creamy vanillan finish. Deakin Cabernet cries out for a grilled steak, it would also go beautifully with traditional Italian, pasta and meatballs or cacciatore with mushroom olive.
