Description

Wine comments

Max & Me 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.
