2009 Maverick Breechens Chardonnay Semillon

The Maverick Breechens is truly our “Maverick house wine”. The grapes used reflect each year what in our opinion gives the best blend. In 2009 the mix is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Semillon. The wine is bright, lively and complex showing lovely primary and secondary varietal characters.

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, with the Semillon giving zesty fresh fruit. A lively but well balanced wine which shows 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 from the Eden Valley and is partly fermented in oak, partly in a subtle blend of newer and older oak which gives structure and complexity but does not in any sense dominate the wine. Despite the heat and intensity of harvest, the wine has great balance, zesty acidity, and vivacious fruit. Although the least expensive of the Maverick offerings, this is a perfect example of what our house has to offer.
