Max & Me The House Blend

‘The House Blend’ of Max & Me’s estate is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The grapes are from our Boongarrie Vineyard.

Each release of the House Blend varies in varietal composition, but it is always a blend of our Bottom Block Cabernet and North Block or House Block Shiraz. The vines grow next to each other.

The name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Cabernet/Shiraz blends being called ‘Great Aussie Blends’. “House” refers here to the great house of Australia.

Shiraz and Cabernet blend beautifully together. While the cabernet brings dark fruits and structure, the Shiraz overlays mulberry, chocolate, and generosity. The ability of this blend to improve with cellaring is impeccable.
