About this Item

2011 Max
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

After nearly two decades at Tokara’s helm, Miles Mossop had the time to fine-tune his own brand. Miles Mossop Wines was established in 2004 with the vision to create wines unique in character, expressing the true nature of South Africa and the sites from which the grapes are sourced. It is a family business with Miles Mossop as winemaker and viticulturist including wines that are named after Miles and Samantha Mossop's three children.

This wines comes from Miles Mossop's flagship range of wines dedicated to his family which is one of the most important things in my life. Each wine in this contemporary range of fine wine bears the name of a family member. Each an expression of the highest quality in their style, reflecting a sense of place and unmistakably South African. Produced with fruit forward character, balance, texture and age-ability in mind.

Critics Ratings

‘Quintessential Médoc styling in the composed Cabernet Sauvignon-led 2011 with Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Malbec. Tightly structured, expressive blackcurrant fruit with classic hints of graphite, needing plenty of time before broaching.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*

‘Miles Mossop’s red Bordeaux blend comes from very poor soils in the Bottelary Hills, combining Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Petit Verdot, 22% Merlot and a dash of Malbec. Fresh and sappy, with attractive secondary fruit flavours from bottle ageing, it’s minty, refined and stony with plenty of backbone for further development.’ - Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2015, 92/100
