Wine comments

The Max & Me Estate ‘The House Blend’ is a full-bodied Cabernet Shiraz, but owing to its location, Eden Valley in the elevated Barossa Ranges, it shows lovely fragrance and fine tannins. The grapes were all sourced from our Boongarrie Estate vineyard, and the 2021 House Blend is our third release of ‘The House Blend’.

Shiraz made up 75% of the blend and came from our ‘North Block’. On 26/3/21, grapes were harvested by a destemming and grape sorting harvester, then fermented in grape bins for 11 days on skins. It’s a peculiar quirk of Boongarrie Vineyard that Cabernet and Shiraz are usually ripe at the same time, as in 2021. Also on 26/3, Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from our ‘Bottom Block’ using a grape sorting harvester. A 11-day fermentation took place in grape bins. Each batch was pressed separately and aged for 21 months in oak puncheons and hogsheads. The components were blended before bottling in January 2023. This wine is vegan-friendly and was made without fining.

Tasting Notes

Deep rich mahogany red with a solid core
Aroma: Inviting nose of rich and fresh Shairaz and Cabernet dark fruits, Eden Valley violets, fine cedar.
Flavour: Palate shows a lovely amalgamation of two varieties, with dark brambly fruits and cassis and classic purity on the long flavours.
