Maxwell Wines Little Demon Envious N.V. Sparkling

Named after the Scottish physicist James Maxwell’s hypothetical intelligent gatekeeper, the ‘Little Demon’, illustrated in the thought experiment about the possibility of violating the second law of thermodynamics. Combined with a simple play on words ‘Envious’ to represent this NV Sparkling, or ‘NVS’ for short. This NVS has a composition of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit which provides this Sparkling wine with citrus flavours that illuminates the palate and provides the wine with freshness. A bright pale straw colour with aromas of fresh green apple and citrus effervesce. Delicate creamy yeast characters which bring style and complexity, while a subtle melon note plays in the background. The Maxwell Wines Little Demon NVS has good length with a pleasantly dry finish and is wine made for celebration, to be enjoyed now.

2018 Nietschke Jack Shiraz

The 2018 vintage was superb, a true classical Barossa vintage. Great Uncle Jack would be proud as this is a modern Shiraz with a twist. There’s a little something extra with a dash of Petite Sirah added for complexity. The Nietschke 2018 Jack Shiraz is a deep red colour with purple hues, that’s very uplifting with inviting aromas of chocolate cake, plum, cinnamon, roses and a hint of toasty mocha oak. The palate is full-bodied with rich dark fruits. It is generous, mouth-filling and beautifully balanced. Along with red and black fruits are subtle oak barrel notes giving complexity and dimension. Tannins are mild and well-integrated adding structure without obtrusion. A lengthy finish completes this wine. This is a fine Barossa Shiraz that will cellar gracefully in the medium term.
