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. 


Sparkling Mead

Many years ago following Ken Maxwell’s eccentric lead in reading about alcoholic drinks in history, Mark learnt of mead that was made from fermenting honey and blackberries to create Morat. Mark then started experimenting with a soda stream to see if it could be made into a Sparkling Mead.

Many years have passed, and with the soda stream and blackberries nowhere to be found, Mark has continued to innovate and experiment with this ancient drink.

Maxwell Sparkling Mead is as contemporary as it is delicious. Refreshing and pure, this latest addition to the Maxwell range puts mead firmly in the realm of everyday summer drinking.

With low alcohol and a delicate bead and flavoured with subtle hints of ginger, this mead is at home on the beach or around the barbeque.

Tasting Notes

Colour Pale honey gold in colour.

Nose Perfumed aromas of fresh ginger, flowers and subtle honey.

Palate Fresh flavours of honey, with fresh ginger and a hint of spices. Well balanced, with just a touch of sweetness, fresh acidity and fine bubbles all come together to create a well balanced and refreshing sparkling mead.
