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. 

 

2018 Little Demon Grenache Rose

In 1871 Scotish scientist James Clerk Maxwell proposed a thought experiment that involved a hypothetical creature acting as a gatekeeper between two compartments to sort gas molecules according to there speed. At fist glance such as system could potentially create energy from nothing...theoretically impossible given the laws of physics. This hypothetical gatekeeper became known to physicists as Maxwell's Little Demon and has stirred debate in the science community for more than a century.

Tasting Notes

Colour Pale salmon

Nose Vibrant strawberries with floral notes

Palate Fresh and balanced with vibrant strawberries. and cream character The time spent lingering over a plush mouthfeel is rewarded with length, refreshing acidity and a clean, dry finish.  

Vintage Notes

The grape quality for the 2018 harvest was formed by having a good wet season in 2017, but a dry season ensuing, which prevents excessive vigour or disease problems. Summer was unusually dry, there was as little as 10mm of rain from 1st of January to mid-April. Favourable summer ripening weather with daytime temperatures in the high twenties, with cool nights, led to fruit in great condition at picking. The good condition of fruit going into the winery allowed winemakers the freedom to give un-rushed care for the fermentation period. Crop yields were 15-20% down on Vintage 2017 compared to average.
