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. 

 

Liqueur Mead

Where beer and cider was the daily tipple of the Vikings, mead was considered something a little more special. Indeed it was the wedding drink of the Norse. In medieval Europe it was served at the finest occasions, consumed at court by royalty and a badge of affluence and status.                    

In the early 80’s Mark Maxwell embarked on a journey to produce a mead of such style and complexity as to befit this heritage. By the mid-eighties, Maxwell Liqueur Mead was born.

Starting with a base of Spiced Mead, a secret herb & spice infusion is added, and then the mead is fortified. Spending twelve to fifteen months in old bourbon barrels in Maxwell’s cellars completes this limited release mead.

Maxwell’s Liqueur Mead has also been twice awarded ‘best dessert mead’ at the International Mead Festival Competition in the USA.
