Quick Overview

The nose offers dark fruit, wonderful cigar box and caramelised blackberry aromas with a little red pepper, showcasing new-world fruit paired with old-world winemaking techniques. There is sweet, concentrated ripe red fruit on the palate, matched with big, well-integrated tannins and a bright, elegant finish. 

Winemaker - Craig McNaught

Additional Information


This wine, like its namesake, our 13-year-old Jack Russel, has serious attitude and as was recently pointed out to us, it is now also full-bodied! The idea behind The Max is to create a wine that has huge ageing potential as well as round, rich flavours that allow the wine to be enjoyed in its youth. It is a Bordeaux-style blend, made up of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. All of the components were picked at full ripeness to ensure that the tannins, while firm and grippy, are also round and moreish. The four varieties were matured in a combination of 30% new and 70% second-and-third-fill French oak barriques for 27 months before blending and bottling. A particularly good vintage for this wine, offering the potential to be cellared for 10 to 20 years.
