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

Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz – Delicate red fruit and herbal aromas open up to a palate of ripe mulberry and plum fruit. the fine grained tannin and vanilla from the oak, work in balance to deliver a wine of poise and elegance.

Soldiers Block Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 – 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process – a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses

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.

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.
