Mead is a unique and rare beverage made by fermenting honey, it's the oldest fermented drink known to mankind, known as ambrosia nectar of the gods by ancient Greeks. The vikings believed it to be an aphrodisiac, the groom and wedding guests indulging it for one month, hence a honeymoon! Maxwell Honey Mead is a favourite drink amongst the growers and winemakers of McLaren Vale where it's regularly mixed with dry ginger ale, it's also a vital ingredient for creative cooking. Try Maxwell on ice or as a refreshing spritzer mixed with light beer.
Over the years Maxwell have won numerous national and international awards, considered the modern benchmark for this ancient style of wine. Maxwell has been awarded its third consecutive Gold Medal in three showings at the International Mead Festival, the world's largest competition. Following success in both 2003 and 2004 with Maxwell Liqueur Mead in the Dessert category, Maxwell Honey Mead took honours in the varietal section of the 05/06 competition, a category showcasing pure honey wines. International Mead Festival judged Maxwell as best Mead in the world for 2006. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep straw hues. Delicate bouquet of floral beeswax with marmalade aromas. Refreshingly light on the palate, subtle apricot and honey characters fill the mouth, with a satisfyingly clean finish. Ideally served chilled over ice, it can also be used as a mixer with soda water or lemonade. A complement to fine gourmandise, creating delicious chicken courses or sticky pork recipes.

About the Maxwell Winery
Since 1979, family owned Maxwell Wines, with its forty acre estate vineyard, has built a reputation for handcrafting superior and world class wines that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse
The Maxwell 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 50 years of family research and development. Maxwell»
