5 Stars - Platters Guide

The unique mesoclimate at Stony Brook seems naturally suited to growing
red Bordeaux varieities. There is plenty of sunshine to allow the grapes ample
ripeness, while the cool night-time temperatures seal in the acidity and
increase the potential for hangtime on the vine. With each vintage of The
Max, the aim is to craft a wine that has huge ageing potential as well as rich,
harmonious flavours that allow the wine to be enjoyed in its youth. The 2019
vintage is a four-way Cape Bordeaux-style blend, made up of 47% Cabernet
Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot, and 14% Petit Verdot. Matured
in 50% new French oak barriques for 26 months before blending and bottling.

TASTING NOTES


The Max 2019 is lighter on its feet than previous vintages, with playful yet
concentrated red fruit aromatics and a touch of tobacco and cedar. The palate
effortlessly balances its plush fruit and moreish tannins in a dry, savoury
finish. Enjoy for up to 18 years from vintage.

Alcohol: 14%
