Tasting Notes

    James Halliday Rating
  • Colour: Deep brick red with garnet hues.
  • Bouquet: Lifted with intense red currants and ripe berries. Interwoven with the fruit, hints of tobacco, menthol and dusty cedar oak provide contrast and balance.
  • Palate: Polished and focused with super-fine coating tannins. Lovely ripe berry fruits are interwoven with notes of tobacco, spice and classic Barossa dark chocolate. The finely textured palate is balanced and long.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Maverick’s Barossa Ridge vineyard is situated at the foot of the ridgeline which runs North-South through the Barossa Valley. While the warm climate ensures optimal ripening and tannin maturity, cooling evening breezes provide for the development and retention of varietal characters. 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 the hot summer, conditions in the Barossa were favourable for very good colour and tannin development as well as good acid and pH levels.
