Wine Summary Image

What was originally known for over 100 years as Ellen Street runs along the southern boundary of the Maxwell vineyards. Situated between this road and the winery is a small vineyard of craggy, gnarled Shiraz vines planted in 1953. Every year these vines bear some of the best fruit on the estate, however in very small quantities, with an average crop of less than 2 tonnes per acre.

Expert Reviews

Deeply coloured, with extremely ripe aromas of blackberry jam, prune, bitter chocolate a healthy dose of mocha oak; the palate is dense, dark and chewy and full-blooded, with a lingering mocha note to conclude. Rating 90 - Drink by 2020 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep dark-red and purple colours indicate the concentration of this premium Shiraz.

Aroma

Varietal aromas of blueberry, plum and dark chocolate intertwine with aniseed, vanilla bean and sweet spice.

Palate

The palate shows good fruit intensity and opulence. A generous and complex wine supported by careful integration of American oak. Fine long tannins provide

excellent structure, elegance and poise, creating a refined well-balanced palate and prolonged finish.

Cellaring Potential

Given satisfactory cellaring conditions, it is expected this wine will drink particularly well at 6 to 8 years of age. Previous vintages of this wine have performed

exceptionally well in the winery’s cellars over 10 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Since 1979, family owned Maxwell Wines, with its forty acre estate vineyard, has built a reputation for producing hand made, rich and robust reds that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse. The signature Lime Cave Cabernet and Ellen Street Shiraz are acclaimed for their cellaring potential and purity of expression. The white wines achieve freshness and superb varietal character via slow, cool ferments that capture the delicacies of the grapes.

Their estate vineyards are some of the most favourably positioned in the McLaren Vale district. Situated on solid limestone, in proximity to the moderating effects of the Gulf of St Vincent, the conditions in the vineyards are ideal for producing small quantities of intensely flavoured grapes.

The oldest vines on the property were planted in 1953, directly below where the Winery now stands. Known within the Winery as the "Max Flat Block", these Shiraz vines always produce some of the best fruit on the estate, providing the base for the Ellen Street Shiraz. This block consists of alluvial red-brown clay over limestone, and is typically one of the earliest ripening Shiraz blocks in the region.
