Maxwell Silver Hammer Shiraz 2016 (McLaren Vale)

The Maxwell Silver Hammer Shiraz 2016 is rich purple and red in colour.

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

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

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

The winter of 2015 was cold and relatively dry, with July and August being quite low rainfalls. In November we had warm and still weather which made ideal conditions for the grapes to set. We then moved into a hot and very dry period leading into February and the vines started to show a bit of stress. Then we had a very beneficial rain event pouring 32mL into the soil, which freshened the vines without any disease issues. The crop levels were up on previous years across the region, but the flavours are concentrated and showing lots of ageing potential.

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

Reviews & Accolades

"Some days you’re just after a good, solid, warm-hearted red. This would be a sound choice.

It feels smooth, tastes rich, and finishes sound. It’s a good unit. Plum, milk coffee, campfire and clove smells/flavours. There’s ample volume, particularly after it’s been given a chance to breathe. It finishes warm but it remains neat. There’s value to be had here."
