A chance recommendation at an Osoyoos restaurant led to a bottle of outstanding new to market wine under the Maverick label.We were so impressed we made it our mission to track down the winery.Fortunately the website had just come on line.After a chat with the owner, rather surprised at the quick feedback,we had an appointment for tasting the next morning.
The owners were waiting at the top of the driveway in their workclothes as construction is still underway. Throughout the visit we were charmed by owners, Schalk, and Bertus ( accomplished vintner) and thoroughly charmed and educated by both. As the tasting room was not yet constructed , we were escorted into the winery itself. Enveloped by the aroma of the fermenting wine, and around an oak barrel, we sampled three varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and the Origin Blend.We were struck by the passion and vision of the owners, and the excellence of the wine.
We visited 11 Okanagan wineries and Maverick stood out , despite the absence of pretence often found elsewhere. We left as very happy customers with 2 cases of wine in the trunk and look forward to our next visit.
