Description

Murdoch Hill has been in the Downer family since 1939 but vines were first planted here only in 1998. The farm is on the eastern side of the Adelaide Hills in the Onkaparinga Valley, with 21 hectares of vineyard on shallow red loam soils packed with schist and limestone and up to 516 metres above sea level. Since taking over the winemaking reins in 2012, Michael Downer has taken the farm’s wines to similar heights.

The Syrah grapes are hand harvested and de-stemmed into open fermenters with varying levels of whole bunches. The wine is matured in a combination of new and older French oak barriques and puncheons for 10 months before bottling.  A mid ruby colour the aroma are of dark fruits, cherries and blueberries with hints of leather and smoke.  The wine is medium bodied with fine tannins flavours of of sweet berries with vanilla and a little spice with a long aftertaste.

Perfectly matched with Red Meat,  Game,  Ragu Pasta and Mature Cheeses.
