Murdoch Hill Estate
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
Notes: The ‘Doctor’ of Hills Shiraz, Michael Downer is hands down
producing and growing some of the best Shiraz on his families
property in Oakbank, SA. The fruit for this wine comes off their Eastfacing block at around 420m. The ‘17s show a cooler, spicier side
to the variety, but the red fruits associated with this part of the hills.
It’s an elegant expression of the variety and mastered by a kid who
can do no wrong at the moment.. well played!
Region: Eden Valley, SA
Notes: Impressively aromatic and perfumed showing purple
fruits, violets and dark cherries. A fragrant, seductive and alluring
wine, it is smooth, fleshy, spicy and balanced with a long finish.
Pair with lamb en croute, redcurrant sauce and watercress salad
or spicy Thai peanut sauce over roasted sweet potatoes and rice.
