Established in 2004 by Ron Brown, Maverick is a relative new-comer to Australian wine, though the vineyards themselves are anything but young, with half the vines over a hundred years old. Brown’s goal has been to position Maverick as one of the top premium boutique wineries in Australia. The wines are handcrafted from 100% biodynamically-farmed vineyards, with Maverick’s Vine Vale winery certified biodynamic. These are exceptional offerings that may prompt you to review any preconceptions you might be harbouring about the nature of Australian wine. Elegant and restrained, beautifully executed, as they break the mould, they won’t disappoint.
