The Shop


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.

2018 Eden Valley Riesling

There are several suitable vineyard sites for Riesling in the Eden Valley. We chose one of Peter Miles’ smaller parcels from Casey’s Block. This site has a northerly aspect and an elevation of 410 metres above sea level which enjoys warm days and cold nights, which encourage slow ripening while retaining natural acidity.

The decision to pick was made on a regular (3 times a week) visit to taste the berries to harvest when the balance of flavour, sugar and acid hit their peak.   The wine was cold settled, clarified and fermented with a new German wine yeast, designed to leave a pure expression of the grape in the finished wine. After a cold fermentation of 7 weeks , the wine was bottled late May under screw cap.

Tasting Notes

Colour Pale straw with green tints.

Nose Honeysuckle and lime with hints of flinty minerals.

Palate An elegant style displaying lingering citrus, grapefruit and melon. A smooth creaminess on the mid palate finishing with its minerality and balance.
