The Maxwell Vineyard is situated in the exceptional Southern Clays, nestled in the gentle north facing foothills of the Ben Morven Valley in Marlborough. The vineyard’s clay soils, coupled with a strong pursuit of vine health and balance, have resulted in fruit of outstanding quality.
Powerful aromas of boxwood and passionfruit combine with underlying green capsicum and subtle flinty notes. The palate is full and rich exploding with blackcurrant leaf, grapefruit and complexing mineral characters. The intense fruit notes are complemented by a finely woven acidity, creating a long lingering finish.
Match to Manuka smoked salmon or sautéed scallops with grilled seasonal vegetables.
