The Murdoch Hill Vineyard stands 512m high in the cool climate Adelaide Hills near the township of Oakbank.

• Vine Positioning: A predominately north facing slope,maximizes sunlight and facilitates ripening.

• Soil Structure: Sandy loam over medium clay subsoils.

• Canopy Management: Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP), canopy trimming and spur pruning.


The 2009 vintage had a long dry and mild ripening period. During January there was a very hot spell which provided excellent conditions for fruit development and ripening.


Whole bunches were harvested, crushed and fermented on skins.  Regular hand plunging in 2 tonne open fermenters enabled us to fully extract colour, flavour and tannins. The wine was then pressed and matured in a combination of new and older French oak barrels for 14 months before bottling.


Picked from the warmest site in the vineyard, this cabernet shows excellent varietal fruit characteristics of blackberry, cherry and violets. 14 months in the finest French oak has resulted in a well balanced and structured wine.
