Maxwell Wines

South Australia | McLaren Vale

Our Review

Maxwell Wines has carved out a reputation as a premium producer in McLaren Vale, making some excellent red wines in recent years. The majority of the vines on the estate were planted in '72, including 19 rows of the highly regarded Reynella clone of cabernet sauvignon. The Ellen Street shiraz block in front of the winery was planted in ’53. Kate Petering, formerly chief winemaker at Mount Langi Ghiran, was appointed head winemaker in March ’19. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d'Avola, Fiano and Verdelho
