Maverick Eden Regained Shiraz 2020
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Ron Brown of Maverick Wines tends to 75 acres of vineyards spread across the Barossa and Eden Valley. Not any old vines- these are some of the oldest in the region, many hit their centenery long ago, some are even reaching into their second century having been planted in 1840. You should only have love and respect for vines like these, hence why it’s a natural choice to tend to the vineyards biodynamically. Everything is dry grown (meaning, the soils aren’t inundated with irrigated water), hand harvested, and lovingly reincarnated into some stunning wines. It’s no surprise that Ron was 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 the glowing review below from Halliday for a bit more detail.
Halliday Wine Companion
“Maverick's Trial Hill vineyard, at one of the highest points in the Barossa, is the source of this beautifully balanced, savoury shiraz. Tension, clarity and detail all on song here with ripe damson plum, layered spice, violets and lighter tones of licorice and roasting meats. Composed and graceful with an airy sense of space, fine, ripe cascading tannins and a finish that trails of persistently. Wonderfully elegant 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.
