Maximus Wines from McLaren Vale South Australia are not likely to be found in the bargain barrel but are well worth keeping an eye out for. These are hand crafted wines from a small producer and present an honest reflection of their source. The grapes for the chardonnay are sourced from Adelaide Hills and this cool climate wine with its stone fruit flavours and elegance is made for food.
Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale usually takes a back seat to Grenache and Shiraz from this region, but the 2009 Premium Cabernet Sauvignon from Maximus packs lots of rich fruit flavour, soft tannins and is one of the gems from this vineyard.
The Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre (GSM) is a blend McLaren Vale excels at and the Maximus is no exception, a few trophies and a gold medal indicate this wine as winner with wine judges.
Maximus is the latest winery to join the Cadenzia group which was a McLaren Vale initiative that came into being to promote and increase awareness of the Grenache variety that excels in this region.
