Maverick Trial Hill Eden Valley Shiraz 2018



Pull back the arrow, aim for the target, release the bow - bullseye! The precision of this Shiraz is superb.

Such a pretty and fine wine. It's gorgeous really. Immerse yourself in dancy red florals which slowly cascade from the glass. Silky smooth, the fruit is delicate deluxe. Medium bodied (13.5%), this is melt in your mouth kind of stuff. Off a 1.6 hectare organic and biodynamic north facing Eden Valley vineyard, a little char and meatiness add savoury appeal to the sumptuous fruit. Red berry fruit reigns supreme. You get a sense they are floating clouds of pleasure gliding through the mouth with absolute ease. Finely ribbed brown spices add another veneer of interest before delicate peppery spices have the last dance. A deceptively long length has you on your knees begging for more. Although this is most approachable now, it will live well beyond a decade. Brilliant!
