Description

Murdoch Hill Rose 2019

Murdoch Hill Rose 2019  is a dry rosé is packed with flavour, perfect for summer drinking. Picked with ripeness in mind and pressed straight to barrel for a wild spontaneous ferment. A crisp refreshing wine with depth, loads of mouth-watering rose water, touch of spice and texture that lingers to a dry finish.

Our vineyard is 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 our belt the results speak for themselves. We carefully hand prune, shoot thin, bunch thin, and hand pick to produce the best possible wines that show the unique characters of our place.

Michael, (our Winemaker) he is the youngest in the family and when the wine bug hit, he never looked back. After studying Oenology he went to work for a top Winery in the Adelaide Hills before embarking on a globe trotting adventure. Touring the great wine regions of the world with harvest experience in Barolo, Italy, he then returned to Oz with vintages in Great Western, Victoria and other local wineries before finally joining the family winery in 2012. He is now our winemaker, mum is as proud as ever and he does make some great wines!

Adelaide Hills is buzzing with change and innovation and Murdoch Hill is a producer that is now at the forefront of this action. It’s worth pointing out that Murdoch Hills is not a new player in the Australian wine scene – the Estate vineyards were planted by the Downer family in 1998. But it has been the return of the family’s youngest member, Michael Downer, to take over the winemaking duties in 2012, that has created the excitement here. Pumped from stages at Vietti (Piedmont), Best’s Great Western and Shaw+Smith, Downer has wasted little time in applying his experience and passion to his family vineyard practices and winemaking. The most obvious changes he has implemented have been bringing the winemaking in house (it was previously outsourced to a neighbouring winery) and the creation of the Artisan range of single-parcel, minimal intervention bottlings. Tapping into the freshness gifted by his high-altitude vines, while keeping winemaking artefact to a minimum, Downer’s approach has led to a range of juicy, vibrant wines that highlight the detail and freshness of each site. We are not the only ones who have been following this young winemaker’s progress with interest – Downer was a Young Guns of Wine finalist in 2014 and the joint winner of the ‘Winemaker’s Choice’ in 2015. His wines have also been getting great reviews and a number of gongs in recent times (including two wines in the top ten at the Adelaide Review Hot 100 last year).
