Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Bright pale straw with green hues.
  • Bouquet: Pungent lime and lemon characters, florals, spice, hints of bath salts and minerals.
  • Palate: Powerful fruit characters of cut limes, brown lime juice and citrus pith. Lively and clean, the palate shows intense steely, mineral acidity. The wine is well balanced from start to finish and shows incredible length and persistence.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Maverick’s two hectare Riesling vineyard is situated on a naturally occurring North-East facing amphitheatre high in the Eden Valley and is perfectly situated for the production of high quality Riesling. The early part of the 2006 ripening season was mild and dry, allowing for the development of concentrated flavours coupled with excellent natural acidity.
