About This Wine

The Maxwell Eocene Shiraz is a terroir focussed, single vineyard Shiraz from the most northern part of the estate on the corner of Olivers and Chalk Hill Roads in McLaren Vale. The vines are a special clone called 1654 and planted in 1994, are now given special treatment of leaf plucking and cultivation and cover crops to enhance the individual characters of the berries. The soil profile comprises alluvial grey-brown loam over limestone – specifically Blanche Point Formation with Tortachilla Limestone. The geology of this area was created 35 million years ago during the Eocene Epoch, hence the name given to this wine.

Colour and Aroma
Deep purple in colour with aromas of bright and vibrant berry fruit and vanilla oak.

Palate
The palate is well balanced with generous fruit weight, fresh fruit flavours of blackberry, raspberry and plum with integrated soft oak tannins.

Cellaring Potential
Though the balance and integration of flavours upon its release are excellent, the Eocene Shiraz is made for medium to long term cellaring. Given satisfactory cellaring conditions, it is expected this wine will drink particularly well at 10 to 15 years of age.
