About this Item

Max, 2008
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

‘Plush & modern 2008, in same mould as 2007 (4.5 stars), with polished dark fruits. Tobacco & graphite whiffs from 50% cab with support from merlot & petit verdot. Perfectly poised ripeness runs to supple tannins showing very deft handling of excellent fruit.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 5* (2012)

‘50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petit Verdot, 23% Merlot. Well balanced. Some freshness, chewy end. Very classic! Very unlike some of the more obvious 'modern' reds.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20 (Oct 2011)
