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.



"A snapshot of a 
season that will
never be repeated"

 Wine View Vale




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 Kangaroo Island Shiraz

Approximately 90 kilometres south of the Maxwell winery, Kangaroo Island is distinguished by a cooler maritime climate compared to our McLaren Vale vineyards, with the surrounding sea playing a key role in moderating daily temperatures. There are often strong, cool, fresh breezes coursing through the vineyards. The property is at sea level, and the Shiraz vines are over 20 years old.

Tasting Notes

Colour Deep red with bright crimson hues

Nose Aromas of red berries, dried herbs and vanilla

Palate The KI shiraz delivers all the hallmarks that make the combination of this variety and the Kangaroo Island region so unique - a well balanced palate shows flavours of lifted red cherry, plum and white pepper. This is a medium bodied wine with the subtle use of French oak providing fine long tannins.
