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. 

 

Spiced Mead

Like many great things in history, spiced mead was born out of necessity. When mead found its way to England in the middle-ages by the sharp end of a Viking sword, honey was a cheaper commodity than sugar. Mead was fermented communally and was available for collection around the village. Often remaining there for weeks, spices were added as the mead began to spoil to mask any unpleasant flavours! A happy accident indeed.

In the early 70’s Ken Maxwell began selling his famous honey mead with an envelope of spice to allow mead drinkers to ‘mull’ their mead at home. These days Mark Maxwell does all the hard work for you as the now famous ‘Spiced Mead’ is made to a secret and finely honed family recipe.

With an army of loyal followers this winter elixir has warmed the hearts and bodies of a generation or more, a veritable potion of pleasure.
