2009 Maxwell Ellen Street Shiraz
Totally opaque black dark crimson red purple colour with deep dark purple crimson red hue. The nose exhibits aromas of ripe blackberry and liquorice followed by some ripe dark plum, confectionary and spice. Matured in American oak hogsheads for 24 months. Full bodied the palate delivers densely concentrated flavours of ripe dark plum, blackberry and dark chocolate followed by a hint of liquorice and some spice all wrapped up in an opulent texture. Silky smooth tannin structure. Excellent length with long ripe blackberry, dark plum, dark chocolate and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years (2012-2017).
