Maverick may have been founded in 2004, but its vineyards have seen many a vintage and in some cases pre-date the winery by over a century! It’s winery in the Barossa Valley is home to historic, low yielding grape vines. Yet, whilst Maverick’s grape vines may have a lot of history, its approach to its winemaking is very progressive.
Through the vision and eccentricity of winemaker and owner, Ron Brown, Maverick has embraced a biodynamic system of farming in his vineyards. Maverick’s old vines and biodynamic farming allows the creation of intense, pure, low-yielding fruit.
Grape Varieties: 87.2% Shiraz, 12.8% Grenache.
Farming Practices: Maverick wines are made from biodynamically-farmed estate fruits. Their vineyards are certified by NASAA (National Association of Sustainsble Agriculture of Australia) as biodynamic or biodynamic in conversion.
Tasting Notes: Layers of sweet black fruit, some dark spices, subdued flashes of oak. Silky and supple, balanced and moderately weighted with good flesh. Finishing soft, clean and dry. Very good strong persistence of boysenberry and blackcurrant flavours.
