2015 Minotaur Shiraz
A feature of the Maxwell estate is the conifer maze adjacent to the old Ellen Street in front of the winery. Many visitors to the estate take time to stroll down its paths. A labyrinth is a circular maze that in ancient Greek mythology secured the fearsome might of the half man / half bull Minotaur for King Minos of Crete. We have created the Minotaur label to convey the power and intensity contained within this, our Reserve Shiraz.
