Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Bright pale yellow with green hues.
  • Bouquet: Flavours and aromas of ripe melons and citrus combine with more subtle notes of crème brulee, nuts, spices and vanilla bean.
  • Palate: Soft and round with lovely texture and intensity. Elegant spicy oak and fine tannins further contribute to this well balanced wine which shows lovely length and texture. A perfect accompaniment for seafood, Asian cuisine and white meats.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: The grapes are all vinified in our winery. The Chardonnay is 100% oak barrel fermented, but with a subtle blend of new and older oak ensuring that this gives structure and complexity but does not in any sense dominate the wine. The vineyards providing the fruit are from across the Barossa. Despite the heat, brevity and intensity of what was probably the shortest and earliest harvest in recent Barossa history, the wine has great balance and elegance, and although the least expensive of the Maverick offerings is a perfect example of what our house has to offer.
