Eocene 'Ancient Earth' Shiraz 2022

This is a Maxwell Estate wine.

The geology of the terroir underneath the single-vineyard Shiraz for this wine was created 35 million years ago during the 'Eocene Epoch', hence we are honoured to pay homage to its ideal vineyard-growing conditions with this earthy style Shiraz that boasts both richness and an extended palate. The soil profile comprises alluvial grey-brown loam over limestone – specifically Blanche Point Formation with Tortachilla Limestone.

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, cultivation and cover crops to enhance the individual characters of the berries.
