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. 


NV Classic Tawny

A great example of quality grapes fortified and left for many years quietly resting and developing in oak barrels without being disturbed, pumped, topped or even yelled at!

What once was called Port has now changed as the EU ask us to respect their history . We have decided on classic tawny to suggest some time ageing in barrel of around ten years . The Shiraz was fortified and left to mature in seasoned barrels (no new oak).

Tasting Notes

Colour Dark chocolate caramel colour.

Nose Lifted aroma of caramelised honey and raisins.

Palate The palate is viscous, sweet and luscious with intense sultana, dark chocolate, vanilla bean and hints of clove. The aging of this classic tawny has resulted in a very complex wine with a lingering aftertaste.
