Description: This is a venture of Simon Gilbert, established after he ceased to have an executive position with Simon Gilbert Wines in Mudgee. He has joined with Clare Valley vigneron Leigh Eldredge to produce limited quantities of Clare Valley wines. The first release, MAX V, was sourced from three growers in the Clare Valley, utilising the five grapes of Bordeaux: cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Jancis Robinson 18/20
Tasting Note: Powerful and concentrated, but in the best way; blackcurrant leads the charge, quality oak also very much part of the equation; lingering tannins. Exceptionally complex oak treatment: one-third fermented in oak vats, two-thirds fermented in old Mintaro slate fermenters
