William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the icing on the cake.

Vines are pruned to yield no more than two tons to the acre. Founder Dr. Carrodus always aimed for a consistency of quality through a program of obtaining optimal ripeness of fruit each year. The dry farmed vines are hand harvested into small plastic buckets. Vinification begins within two hours of picking, as fruit is passed through an antique Amos crusher and destemmer, into specially designed one ton stainless steel lined fermenters. Approximately a third of components are kept on skins for three weeks maceration before being transferred to barrel for ferments. Dry Red No.2 is matured in nothing less than the finest quality, exclusively French oak barrels.
Deep ruby colour. Attractive vanilla cedar nose, red and black fruits, dried herb and scorched earth notes. A deeply structured palate, heavily laden with enticing fruit flavours, blackcurrants, olive and mint against a background of warm French oak. The structure and tannin balance are magnificent, bramble berries and dark fruit flavours linger on the seemingly endless finish.
