2006 Maverick Twins Barossa Valley GSM


The 2006 Twins GSM is an amalgam of Grenache parcels from Maverick’s Greenock Rise vineyard and the cooler climate Trial Hill vineyard. The result is a combination of vibrant, fleshy fruit and savoury textural elements.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Deep garnet/ruby red
  • Bouquet: Lifted with juicy raspberries and plums. Vanillin spice and dried herbs hum just under the fruit adding complexity.
  • Palate: Plush and focused. Fleshy raspberries and spicy plums sit above notes of dried herbs, spice and lico
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Maverick’s Greenock Rise vineyard is situated on the gently undulating slopes of the Western Barossa while the Trial Hill vineyard is perched high in the cooler Eden Valley. Both vineyards produce Grenache of great character, albeit of very different nature – these “twins” are definitely not identical. Mild to warm conditions over spring and summer led to the rapid maturation of fruit and onset of vintage. In spite of a break in weather and fall in daytime temperatures late in March, conditions in the Barossa were favourable for very good colour and tannin development as well as good acid and pH levels.
