Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.

Winery MAXWELL

Founded in 1979, Maxwell Wines is a family owned vineyard in the heart of McLaren Vale. The estate vineyards are some of the most favourably positioned in the McLaren Vale region. Maxwell produces an extensive array of wines from Semillon, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo among others. The winery’s premium wines include the Ellen Street Shiraz produced from plantings dating to 1953 and the flagship Minotaur Reserve Shiraz. Over the years, Maxwell has also carved out a solid reputation for producing traditional mead, made from fermented honey.
