Tasting Notes

Tasted 02 December, 2018
Appearance: Deep rich mahogany red with a solid core
Aroma: Alluring nose of rich and fresh Cabernet blackcurrant, milk chocolate, Eden Valley violets, fine cedar and red fruits
Flavour: Palate is awash with generous Shiraz richness and terrific flavour drive. Tannins are fine and supple, though the wine has the weight and structure that it should age exceptionally gracefully.

Wine comments

A new-release from Max & Me, the 2017 House Blend Cabernet Shiraz. Our take on the great Aussie Blend, from our Boongarrie Estate vineyard.

An unusual quirk with Boongarrie vineyard is that it’s Cabernet and Shiraz are often ripe at the same time. (One would expect the Cab to typically take a few extra weeks to ripen than the shiraz – but not so!) So putting this to best use, we picked and fermented half of the batch as a Cab/Shiraz co-ferment, then left on skins for a month of extended maceration to build the flavours and refine the tannins. Other parcels were fermented separately. After aging all of the batches in French Oak hogsheads for 18 months, the blend was completed with some extra ‘Bottom Block’ Cab and ‘North Block’ Shiraz, to arrive at a 60/40% Cab Shiraz.
