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.

Beginning with the Bouzy vineyards that originally belonged to founder Philippe Clicquot, subsequent generations, particularly Madame Clicquot, gradually built up the Veuve Clicquot holdings to create one of the most impressive estates in all Champagne. There are some five hundred hectares, half belong to Veuve Clicquot and over a hundred are owned by the LVMH group. The vineyards boast an exceptional average classification of close to 97. Vines are mostly planted to hillsides where soils are shallowest and exposure to the sun is at a maximum. Significantly, Veuve Clicquot adds only a light liqueur doseage during the wine's disgorgement, allowing full expression of the essential Veuve Clicquot style.
Pale gold, silver hues, brilliance, effervescence, a fine and long lasting bead. The nose opens readily, the aromatics are pure yet complex. Chardonnay contributes refined mineral character accompanied by pleasant floral notes of acacia, yellow fleshed fruit, marzipan and brioche. Silky and generous, a wealth of flavours, a deliciously long and powerful finish. Elegant, remarkably well balanced, the perfect accompaniement to refined cuisine.
