Murphy Vineyard Shiraz

Murphy Vineyard Shiraz

This attractive, fruit-driven Shiraz comes from the Murphy family’s vineyards in Australia’s Murray Darling region where they have grown grapes since 1909.
Cherry red with hints of dark plum and chocolate on the nose. The wine is seamlessly balanced with sweet lifted fruit, subtle oak and soft tannins, a delicious wine made to enjoy now.

Harvested at full ripeness, the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for seven days with regular pumpovers to extract colour and flavour. After pressing, the wine was aged with select French and American oak before blending and bottling.

The Murphy family have grown grapes in the Murray Darling region of Australia, part of the Big Rivers, since 1909. They build on this experience to create their fruit-driven wines.
The grape selection and winemaking practices at Murphy Vineyards aim to highlight the fruit flavours with these appealing wines that show ripe fruit aromas and soft, rich palates. Murphy Vineyards have selected, from their own plantings, Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes of good sound quality which have displayed true varietal expression in the final wine.

Inviting on the nose with rich fruit aromas & medicinal hints. On the palate big, rich & soft all the way through with lovely bramble & blackberry fruit flavours followed by just a hint of spice. Fantastic value at this price

16 Stops Shiraz

16 Stops Shiraz – This deep coloured Shiraz is youthful and vibrant, with a lovely dark fruit and spiced plum character on the nose. The oak supports rather than masks the fruit, which is bright and lively yet plush and fleshy on the palate. The tannins are ripe and silky, giving the wine a texture that is unusual at this price.

The grapes are selected from multiple vineyard sites in South Australia, with much of the blend coming from vineyards around the Willunga district. The vines are mainly planted with a north-south row orientation, primarily with clone 1654. This is the clone widely regarded as producing the best Shiraz in the McLaren Vale region. The vines are mainly hand pruned.

The 16 Stops wines are made at the Willunga 100 winery under the watchful eye of consultant winemaker Tim James, with much of the fruit sourced from the same vineyards. The wines blend the fruit from the McLaren Vale with that of the Adelaide Hills to combine the best of both areas, with riper flavours from the McLaren Vale, and fresh, mineral notes from the Adelaide Hills.

The name 16 Stops comes from the number of stops on the railway line from Adelaide to the Vineyard.

Stump Jump Shiraz

d'Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz

Stump Jump Shiraz – a staple from the iconic d’Arenberg Winery.

It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eyesight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. The design of this label is inspired by an optometrist’s eyechart and serves as a makeshift sobriety test. If you can hold the bottle at arm’s length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.

This is a very approachable and fun wine. The lifted nose is a cacophony of aromatic intrigue. Lifted red fruits are chased down by dark berry aromatics which then yield to typical baking spice and cracked pepper characters shared by all good McLaren Vale Shiraz. It’s almost like a race to the finish for these competing characters all vying for the lead role. Yet they also support and complement one another. It is on the palate that the value of this wine can be truly appreciated though. Generous fruit weight supports a fine tannin profile characteristics that would make this wine sit proudly amongst those many times its price. Black olive skin, earthy notes, and a subtle touch of graphite and iron round out the full palate. This wine has a welcome plushness to it, yet sits lightly on the tongue, its tannin and long acid line giving it a lively and playful feel. Have fun enjoying this wine. That’s what it is asking you to do.

Fresh and juicy, ripe red fruits mix with plums, blackcurrant, flowers and a twist of black pepper. The tannins are fine with their trademark earthiness helping keep this easy going Stump Jump Shiraz in check.

5 RED STARs 6 straight years – Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.

Best with barbecued meats, spicy sausages, pasta with ragu sauce, Thai red curries, pumpkin and roasted vegetables.
Mount Hurtle Winery is an oasis among suburbia, nestled amid 4 acres of vineyards and landscaped gardens. With an almost Tuscan charm, the original winery and 1500m2 barrel maturation cellar (completed in 1998) is now perfectly equipped to cope with the rigors of modern winemaking. A large family of geese and ducks also inhabit the winery grounds, especially the dam near the front entrance of the estate.

The history of Mount Hurtle Winery stretches back more than 100 years to 1897 when a young Welshman, Mostyn Owen, bought 200 acres of prime Reynella hillside. Here he planted out 150 acres of vines and built a winery, where he ran the property and produced wine until he passed away in the 1940s.

The winery itself was considered very innovative for its time due to its use of gravity to feed wine throughout the cellars, and is Heritage listed because of this.

Today Mount Hurtle Winery is an oasis among suburbia, nestled amid 4 acres of vineyards and landscaped gardens. With an almost Tuscan charm, the original winery and 1500m2 barrel maturation cellar (completed in 1998) is now perfectly equipped to cope with the rigors of modern winemaking.
