    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 »

    Hewitson Miss Harry Dry Grown GSM CONFIRM VINTAGE

    Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
    A profoundly structured, concentrated Rhône style GSM from hand tended vineyards, at the very heart of Barossa which date back to the 1800s. The old, deep rooted Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre vines accept their fate without blinking, perfectly timing their harvest to accompany the later ripening, lower alcohol Carignan and Cinsault, a small yet important part of the Miss Harry accord. These gnarled veterans have seen every poor growing season before and will again, due to their natural affinity for Barossa Valley.

    Two thirds Grenache, equal portions Shiraz and Mourvedre, the balance in Carignan and Cinsault. Dean Hewitson has been very fortunate to be tutored by some of the best wine makers and wine scientists in the world. Hewitson made the savvy decision to create long term associations with a network of established growers, allowing him the luxury of selecting only the best fruit. Fruit is picked off blocks of hand pruned, unirrigated dryland vines, up to 140 years of age, a third of the harvest is included as whole bunches, cold soaked and vinified on skins for three weeks before completing ferments, malolactic and a year's maturation in a selection of well seasoned French oak barriques. Alcohol 14.0%
    Bright red with deep purple hue. Aroma of black, red and forest berries, pepper and spice, garrigue, dried lavender and herbs with layers of creamy complexity offered by the extended barrel maturation on lees. The palate is wonderfully full, showing ripe black berries, strawberry and plums, a concentrated core of fruit essence with a racy acidity that contributes incredible vivacity. The finish is long, continuous and fresh.
