Verdelho is a white wine grape originating from Portugal and has traditionally been one of the most popular grapes planted on the small island of Madeira since vines were first planted there in the 15th century.

Australian versions of Verdelho are noted for their intense flavours with hints of lime and honeysuckle and the dense texture that the wines can get after some ageing.

Approximately 90 kilometres south of the Maxwell winery, Kangaroo Island is a cooler maritime climate compared to our McLaren Vale vineyards. Often distinguished by a slightly lighter body, and a unique cracked-pepper aroma attributed to growing at a much slower rate than Shiraz on the mainland.

As the vineyard was lost to the bushfires of December 2019, we hope you will relish every last drop of this complex, beautiful cool-climate Shiraz with what few bottles remain.

Mead

This is original mead. With a keen and enquiring mind Ken Maxwell was a student of history, a notable measure of eccentricity saw his passion lean not to the long deceased Kings and Queens filling the educational text books of the time, but to the obscure and creative beverages upon which they indulged.

Like many great things in history, spiced mead was born out of necessity. When mead found its way to England in the middle-ages by the sharp end of a Viking sword, honey was a cheaper commodity than sugar. Mead was fermented communally and was available for consumption around the village.

Where beer and cider was the daily tipple of the Vikings, mead was considered something a little more special. Indeed it was the wedding drink of the Norse. In medieval Europe it was served at the finest occasions, consumed at court by royalty and a badge of affluence and status
