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.

Description

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.
