2009 Maverick Twins Barossa Valley Shiraz

The 2009 Twins Shiraz is a blend of fruit sourced from our Greenock Rise, Barossa Ridge and Paraview vineyards in Barossa Valley, and from our cooler Trial Hill and Old Ben vineyards in the Eden Valley. The result is a combination of vibrant, fleshy fruit supported by spicy textural nuances and ripe tannins.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Opulent, youthful and bright.
  • Bouquet: Aromas of ripe concentrated red and dark berry fruit, with subtle oak nuances adding a light chocolate note.
  • Palate: Big on flavor, with black fruits, plums, licorice and anise. Textural yet subtle tannins, balanced, long – gets better in the glass.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: Maverick’s Greenock Rise vineyard lies in the rolling hills of the Western Barossa; our Barossa Ridge vineyard is situated at the foot of the ridgeline running North-South through the Barossa Valley; and the Paraview vineyard is in between from the Braunack family's ancestral vineyard in Stonewell. The Old Ben vineyard is some 10 kms to the East across the ridge high up in the Eden Valley; our flagship Trial Hill vineyard in Pewsey Vale dominates the surrounding landscape. With growing season rainfall well below average and temperatures well above average, the vines were made to work hard producing healthy fruit of very good quality. Heat waves from December to February further reduced yields. Overall conditions in the Barossa and Eden valleys were conducive to ripening with fruit showing good varietal characters, colour and excellent tannin maturity.
