In 1871 Scottish scientist James Clerk Maxwell proposed a thought experiment, that involved a hypothetical creature acting as a gatekeeper between two compartments to sort gas molecules according to their speed. At first glance, such a system could potentially create energy from nothing… theoretically impossible given the laws of physics. This hypothetical gatekeeper became known to physicists as Maxwell’s Little Demon, and has stirred debate in the science community for more than a century.

This has good depth of colour; sweetly jubey, essency aromas with a lacing of oak. A hint of crushed oyster shell. The tannins are emphatic and slightly grippy, and there’s a core of fruit sweetness and a slightly lifted oak note. A solid, gutsy red that offers a lot of character at a modest price. Now to 10 years. 14 per cent alcohol. Food: barbecued sausages Rating 88 -Huon Hook, HuonHooke.com (AUG/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Intense purple colour
Generous aromas of vanilla, raspberry and spices.
The palate is lively and fresh, medium bodied with complex flavours of blackcurrant, plum, cherries and chocolate with light smooth tannins. The Cabernet flavours really dominate in this wine but the softness of the Merlot rounds off the palate creating a well balanced wine.
This wine is made to enjoy upon release, however it is expected that it will continue give excellent flavour at 4 to 6 years of age, assuming satisfactory cellaring conditions.
