Three generations of vignerons. Everyone born and bred in McLaren Vale.
The pride of the Maxwell estate.
The Minotaur Reserve Shiraz is the finest fruit from nearly 50-year-old vines, planted upon the limestone ridge directly above the winery. Aged 24-36 months before release to drink deliciously now & also be well-suited for decades in the cellar.
An intense perfume of red and blackberries, cherry notes balanced by savoury oak and hints of earthiness. The wine displays varietal primary fruit flavours of rich dark berry fruits, robust gamey and complex forest floor notes. Cedar oak tones and ultra-fine tannins underwrite these flavours, to provide structure and length. The Shiraz parcel chosen for this wine represents the pinnacle of the 2013 vintage. A small production of less than 200 dozen created a wine of power, purity, and persistence.
