2011 Maverick Twins Barossa Shiraz

The 2011 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: Soft, crimson purple
  • Bouquet: Savoury and enticing dark berry fruit with fine peppery spice. Charming rustic notes.
  • Palate: Very classy. Medium-bodied with fine layered tannins and elegant structure. Complex. Very clean finish of fresh, pure, dark berry fruit.
  • Vineyard & Vintage Comments: From all our Shiraz vineyards across the Barossa and Eden Valleys. The 2011 harvest will go down as one in which it never stopped raining, with as a result high incidence of disease across the Barossa which reduced yields and made for a very "European" vintage. We believ hat our Biodynamically-grown vine were able to withstand the inclement weather. The resulting wines are lower in alcohol, high in natural acidity, and more savoury than traditionally in the Barossa. We believe these are excellent wines and show that the Barossa is capable of coping with and triumphantly expressing vintage variation even in the most difficult of years.
