Maverick Wines Pty Ltd. was established in 2004. The objective was and is to become one of the top premium boutique wineries in Australia.
Although the company is young, Maverick owns 150 acres of vineyards from the top terroirs across the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Approximately half of the vines are over 100 years old, and many much older – at Ahrens’ Creek Vineyard at Vine Vale they have 1840’s Semillon, 1840’s Grenache, and 1870’s Shiraz, while in adjoining Barossa Ridge Vineyard they have some Riesling from the 1860’s! For many years the fruit from these vineyards went into some of the top names of the Australian wine industry – they are now proudly incorporated into Maverick wines.
Just as important as the acquisition of top terroirs is caring for them in close harmony with Mother Nature. All our vineyards are biodynamically farmed. The combination of biodynamic viticulture, old vines, and effectively dry farming results in very low yields which in turn give an intense fruit which is fundamental for making premium wines.
