Maxwell Little Demon Shiraz Grenache 2015
The palate has generous flavours of McLaren Vale Shiraz, complimented by the Grenache giving lifted cherry and blueberry aromas with flavours of spice, plums and raspberry. This is a complex wine with excellent food matching ability.
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.
