Max & Me 2018 Shiraz winemaking comments

Max & Me Shiraz 2020 from our estate vineyard. Spicy and fragrant Shiraz from the our estate owned vineyard, located in the Eden Valley in the Barossa’s beautiful high country. Vegan friendly. A single vineyard Shiraz by Philip Lehmann.

Max & Me Estate Shiraz 2018 is from our Boongarrie Estate ‘House Block’ Shiraz, a small ironstone-rich block planted in 1998 with cuttings from the old-block Shiraz on Poonawatta Vineyard, a legendary local Eden Valley source block. Pick date: 29/03/2018. Harvesting was carried out in the cool of night with a grape destemming and sorting harvester. The batch was then open fermented in grape bins, using pigéage for maceration. A total of 14 days on skins. Elevage and maturation was in fine-grain French oak puncheons (new 50%) for 19 months maturation prior to bottling.

2018 was again an excellent growing season at Boongarrie. The autunm ripening conditions were quite warm and dry, but there was sufficient water reserves for vines to finish well. Above average yields occurred this harvest, but the fruit was in excellent balance and had particularly vibrant colour accumulation.

Max & Me 2018 Shiraz tasting notes

Appearance: Vibrant purple-red with a dark core and a bright, youthful rim
Aroma: Ample briar, mulberry and sage, with dark chocolate.
Flavour: Dark savoury brambly fruits, graphite, refreshing minerality and great persistence to the palate length.
A pre-consumption decant/splach is recommended to further open the flavours and aromas.
