  • Murdoch Hill's vineyards are located behind the township of Oakbank in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Producing excellent Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. There has been a lot of blood sweat and tears along the way. Now, with 20 vintages under their belts the results speak for themselves. Winemaker Michael Downer was awarded Young Gun of Wine, 2017.


    50% Syrah, 25% Pinot Noir 25% Merlot. Syrah from an early harvest sourced from our estate vineyard in Oakbank, spontaneous ferment with varying levels of whole bunches combined with a gentle extraction to keep the wine vibrant and delicate. Merlot made in the same technique from a vineyard in Lenswood giving a lush soft red/blue-fruit spectrum, whilst a selection of Pinot Noir from Piccadilly Valley provides exotic spice and a savory edge.


    Overall a vibrant red-fruited wine with gamey, meaty qualities that show bright cherry fruits and underlining spice. The juicy fruit flows on the palate to a fine grainy tannin profile. Only a short maturation in older French oak to retain freshness and purity of fruit, sent to bottle without filtration or fining.
