Since 1979, family owned Maxwell Wines, with its forty acre estate vineyard, has built a reputation for producing hand made, rich and robust reds that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse. The signature Lime Cave Cabernet and Ellen Street Shiraz reds are acclaimed for their cellaring potential and purity of expression. The white wines achieve freshness and superb varietal character via slow, cool ferments that capture the delicacies of the grapes. At Maxwell's, we believe "Life's too short to drink bad wine". The family is also famous for its range of Maxwell Meads, being the most significant producer in the southern hemisphere of this time-honoured, delicious and golden fermented honey. As mead is one of the oldest fermented drinks known to mankind, the late Ken Maxwell was inspired to research and produce what are now highly acclaimed as the benchmark of meads in the world. The Maxwell Meads’ purity of flavour is testament to almost 50 years of family research and development Read more »

  • If you're more than a casual wine drinker, if you follow wine the way bookies follow horses and TMZ follows starlets, then you're familiar with the Natural Wine movement. How could you not be? In the last couple of years, it seems as if every cogent wine commentator in print from San Francisco to Sydney has seen fit to write about the phenomenon... Read More

  • Maxwell Creek Cabernet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Nice Cab. A small lot that is very well balanced and food friendly. One thing I noticed is that there was not much of a bouque to the wine at all. But other than that I really enjoyed this Cabernet! Cheers! Read More

  • Maxwell Creek Cabernet 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Alright, I go first! This wine was a little deceiving to me. The nose is fruity somewhat, which can turn me off, but the finish was pure, bold cabernet, which I love. It has that nice 1-2 punch. I highly recommend it! Read More
