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.

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. 

 

2016 Ellen Street Shiraz

What was originally known for over 100 years as Ellen Street runs along the southern boundary of the Maxwell vineyards. Situated between this road and the winery is a small vineyard of craggy, gnarled Shiraz vines planted in 1953. Every year these vines bear some of the most concentrated fruit on the estate, however in very small quantities, with an average crop of less than 2 tonnes per acre. 

Tasting Notes

Colour Deep purple / red in colour.

Nose Aromas of aniseed, blood plum and vanilla bean, dried herbs and cherries.

Palate Shiraz flavours of plum, chocolate, blackberry fill the palate, yet more subtle and complex notes fill the flavour spectrum with cinnamon, vanilla, raspberry and a hint of mint. This is a generous mouth filling wine yet refined and elegant with soft velvety tannin to complete this wine.
