*Awarded 92 Points by James Halliday*
"An outstanding winery producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity with a 5 star rating for at least 3 consecutive years" - James Halliday, leading Australian wine critic.
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.
It is little surprise that its Shiraz, Chardonnay and Riesling wines are routinely awarded 90+ points each year from leading Australian wine critic, James Halliday.
