Maverick Silk Road Barossa Valley Shiraz

The Silk Road was not only the historical camel route spanning Central Asia and linking Asia to europe, but encompassed the very first wine producing regions of the Anciant World. It therefore symbolises the history of wine and the bridge between cultures which is what Ronald Brown, owner and founder of Maverick Wines, believe the world of wine truly represents.

Sweet dark fruits, hints of coffee and dark chocolate, round, generous, with a hint of dusty tannin drying the finish.
