Maxwell Ellen Street Shiraz 2015
Aromas of aniseed, blood plum and vanilla bean, dried herbs and cherries. Shiraz flavours of plum, chocolate, blackberry fill the palate, yet more subtle and complex notes fill the flavour spectrum with cinnamon, vanilla, raspberry and a hint of mint. This is a generous mouth filling wine yet refined and elegant with soft velvety tannin to complete this wine.
In 1871 Scottish scientist James Clerk Maxwell created an 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.
