Maverick Eden Regained Shiraz 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Maverick Wines tends 75 acres of vineyards spread through the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Many are well over 100 years’ old with some dating back as far as the 1840s. Their winery is Certified Biodynamic and all of their vineyards are either Certified Biodynamic or biodynamic in practice. Dry farming plays a huge part in their grape growing as well, promoting incredible concentration of flavour. Everything is hand harvested and only their own fruit is used. It’s no surprise that Ron Brown, the man behind Maverick, was recently shortlisted for James Halliday’s Viticulturist of the Year Award.
Eden Regained is a serious shiraz that asks a playful question - what if it was the noble grape rather than apples and figs in the story of Adam and Eve? We’re not going to comment one way or the other on this biblical tale, but we will say that this shiraz is complex, vivid and extremely lovable. Check out Halliday’s glowing review below for a bit more detail.
Halliday Wine Companion
“Shiraz sourced from one of the highest points in the Barossa Valley, overlooking Maverick's Trial Hill vineyard. A deeply coloured offering with beautifully composed dark plummy fruit, dotted with spice and mulberry lift. There's texture and flow here, with ample sandy tannin and a sapid twang to the acid profile, driving the rich fruit onwards to a persistent, savoury finish. Bright, perfumed and impressive drinking.”

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
