Maverick Wines was established in 2004. The objective was and is to be one of the top premium boutique wineries in Australia. Although the company is young, Maverick owns 75 acres of vineyards from the top terroirs across the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Approximately half of the vines are over 100 years old, and many much older.
This is magnificently fruited and lifted on the nose showing dark plum, sweet raspberry, floral, anise and cedar characters, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that offers roundness and soothing mouthfeel. It’s seamless and mouthfilling with delectable fruit flavours and spicy nuances backed by fine-grained tannins, finishing impressively long and refined. At its best: 2024 to 2043.

Pull back the arrow, aim for the target, release the bow - bullseye! The precision of this Shiraz is superb. Such a pretty and fine wine. It's gorgeous really. Immerse yourself in dancy red florals which slowly cascade from the glass. Silky smooth, the fruit is delicate deluxe. Medium bodied (13.5%), this is melt in your mouth kind of stuff. Off a 1.6 hectare organic and biodynamic north facing Eden Valley vineyard, a little char and meatiness add savoury appeal to the sumptuous fruit. Red berry fruit reigns supreme. You get a sense they are floating clouds of pleasure gliding through the mouth with absolute ease. Finely ribbed brown spices add another veneer of interest before delicate peppery spices have the last dance. A deceptively long length has you on your knees begging for more. Although this is most approachable now, it will live well beyond a decade. Brilliant! Price: $180.00; Rating: 95 Points; QWine
Medium deep crimson. Pure blackberry pastille, mulberry, espresso aromas with camomile sage notes. Slinky textured wine with dense blackberry, strawberry, mulberry fruits, underlying mocha, espresso notes, and fine looseknit bitter-sweet chalky/ pippy tannins. Finishes brambly firm and long. A stylish medium powered wine with lovely vinosity and mineral length. Drink 2022 - 2030; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
