    Maxwell is an estate with a history and a global reach which belies it's modest size. One notable block of vine originates from stock imported to South Australia by John Reynell over 150 years ago. Maxwell's cuttings were taken directly from the original Reynella vineyard, planted over three decades ago into the shallow topsoil over solid limestone soils on the crest of the estate. The property makes the most of an early ripening, even in extreme weather conditions, grapes are harvested with generous flavours, fine tannins and deep colours. Little Demon is a mostly Shiraz wine with a tenth of Grenache and a dollop of Viognier, matured eighteen months in a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads.
    Dark red purple hue. Floral bouquet abundant with black cherry and plum fruits over hints of aniseed, black olive and tar. Dark berry fruits and cherry persist on the palate with hints of black pepper and long savoury tannins. The Little Demon exhibits great weight of fruit, superb length and remarkable balance. Made to enjoy upon release, a good match with risottos, carpetbag and farced vegetables.
