    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? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the icing on the cake. Terrific value. Oh yes, he suggests that it should be enjoyed by.. Made of mature vine mclaren vale »

    Choice parcels of estate grown Cabernet and Shiraz, off vines up to sixty years of age, are vinified alongside harvests from leading Langhorne Creek growers. Grapes are picked after several passes amongst the vines and kept separate throughout the winemaking, to afford a number of options at completion. Bunches are destemmed and crushed to small open top fermenters, the musts are treated to a day of cold soak maceration. Batches are inoculated for vinification and pumped over two or three times daily throughout the vinification for optimal extract of colour, flavour and tannin. Components are pressed to a selection of seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic and a term of maturation.
    Deep red colour. Lifted floral, chocolate and dark fruits, red berry notes and festive cake complexity, mint, spices and savory notes. The palate is layered with dark fruits, savoury vanilla oak and fragrant spice, over a length of fine tannins which see the Terrier resolve on a soft round, rich and silky finish.
