Details

The winter in 2014 was wetter than usual which resulted in well soaked soils. From August to early January it stayed dry with above average temperatures. Flowering started earlier than average and the grape set was even, but our vines had low bunch numbers. Veraison started normally but accelerated with a mini heatwave early January. Throughout January, 40mm of rain fell, double the average, but very helpful to freshen up the vines. Ripening continued with warm dry days and cool nights and we started harvest with the Verdelho on the 9th February, the earliest on record.

Rich purple and red in colour. The bouquet is abundant with plum, blackberry and red cherries, coupled with hints of mocha and vanilla.

The Maxwell Silver Hammer Shiraz delivers all the hallmarks that make the combination of this variety and the McLaren Vale region so famous.

The palate has an abundance of generous flavours, a rich mouthfeel with blood plum, vanilla and complex savoury spices. The mouth filling flavours are well balanced, full bodied with a soft finish. The result is a wonderfully generous and approachable wine with excellent depth of flavour, fine silky tannins and fruit length.

This wine is made to enjoy upon release, however it is expected that it will continue to mature for another 5 - 7 years with correct cellaring. Winery Notes
