2010 Maverick Twins Barossa Valley GSM


The 2010 Twins GSM is an amalgam of Grenache parcels from Maverick’s Greenock Rise vineyard and the cooler climate Trial Hill vineyard in Pewsey Vale. The result is a combination of vibrant, fleshy fruit and savoury textural elements.

Tasting Notes

    James Halliday Rating
  • Colour: Very deep, garnet/ruby red with purple hues.
  • Bouquet: Attractive fresh black fruit. The wine exudes class with a Northern Rhone-like essence.
  • Palate: “The palate is unctuous and generous, fresh and lively, with attractive and refreshing tannins on the finish.” (James Halliday)
  • 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 – indeed, Trial Hill is one of the very few Grenache vineyards in the Eden Valley which in normal years is too exposed/wet for this sun-worshiping variety, but which was perfectly suited to the heat wave which persisted throughout much of the 2010 harvest. Both vineyards produce Grenache of great character, albeit of very different nature – these “twins” are definitely not identical, and their combination is synergistic and electrifying.
