2014 Maverick Trial Hill Eden Valley Shiraz - Biodynamic/Organic


As with previous vintages, the 2014 Trial Hill Shiraz displays all of the hallmarks of the
cooler Eden Valley. Dark berry fruits, rich and spicy, wonderfully complemented by just the
right touch of French oak.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Garnet.
  • Bouquet: Typical Trial Hill - violets, complex, elegant. Exotic spice, pepper, but takes some time to open.
  • Palate: Perfectly balanced. Fresh acidity. Fine tannins. Lovely, subtle lingering finish.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Trial Hill is a stand-alone vineyard in Pewsey Vale. North-facing, at 450 – 480 m altitude, this vineyard contains many micro-terroirs. The Shiraz vineyard is in three patches totaling 1.6 Ha, down the full height of the vineyard and slightly northwest facing in a reasonably exposed position. The soil is red brown earth formed mainly from marble and calsilicate rock, with underlying water-retentive red clay and covered with recent deposits of acidic grey micacous fine sandy loam.

Food Pairing

Beef, lamb, game and strong cheese.
