2015 Eocene Shiraz

The Maxwell Eocene Shiraz is a terroir focussed, single vineyard Shiraz from
the most northern part of the estate on the corner of Olivers and Chalk Hill
Roads in McLaren Vale. The vines are a special clone called 1654 and planted
in 1994, are now given special treatment of leaf plucking and cultivation and
cover crops to enhance the individual characters of the berries. The soil
profile comprises alluvial grey-brown loam over limestone – specifically
Blanche Point Formation with Tortachilla Limestone. The geology of this area
was created 35 million years ago during the Eocene Epoch, hence the name
given to this wine.
