Maximilian 2019, named after Elise's eldest son, is made with 100% Regent grape variety, a Germanic grape that grows really well in the English climate.
It's a lovely fruity, fresh and light-bodied English red wine. Maximilian 2019 has rich flavours of sour cherries and a smoky finish due to the French Oak ageing.
This wine has a light harmless sediment as it is unfiltered, therefore we recommend that it is decanted before serving. Serve at cool room temperature. Delicious with red meat, stews, tomato based sauces, smoked meat and even curry!
