2016 Maverick Twins Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc (12 bottles minimum)


All of the fruit came from 1.58 Ha of the biodynamic/organic Barossa Ridge vineyard behind the winery. The vines are on about 50 cm of Nuriap sand over medium to soft friable clay at the eastern foothills of the Barossa Ranges, meaning the roots have had to reach down for the water. After 25 years, the roots have located all the fissures and pockets of minerals the vine requires. Regular cooling gully winds from the Ranges relieve the heat of the day, permitting fresher acid balances and more intensity of flavour.
