MAXWELL-STOCKED.

Concentrated. Robust. Characterful. The qualities of the winemaker reflect in the quality of the wine. Because every wine that’s made by Maxwell is, indeed, Maxwell-made. The unique result of one man’s vision, tenacity and unbending standards. Since 1979, Mark Maxwell has come to understand the unique terroir of our limestone hill. And extract every characteristic nuance for every estate wine, regardless of price. Little wonder James Halliday noted our consistent excellence – in red wines particularly – and accorded us his five red-star rating.

-BRANDED.

 

"A snapshot of a

At Maxwell we view a bottle of wine as more than a drink. It is the culmination of a diversified range of talents. From the Head Winemaker to cellar hand. From cooper to farmer, viticulturist to glassmaker, designer and more in-between. Most of all it is a snapshot of a season that will never be repeated and in this way every bottle of wine is truly unique. 

 

2015 Minotaur Shiraz

A feature of the Maxwell estate is the conifer maze adjacent to the old Ellen Street in front of the winery. Many visitors to the estate take time to stroll down its paths. A labyrinth is a circular maze that in ancient Greek mythology secured the fearsome might of the half man / half bull Minotaur for King Minos of Crete. We have created the Minotaur label to convey the power and intensity contained within this, our Reserve Shiraz.
