Murdoch Hill Red Blend 2021


Following four finals appearances, two Winemakers’ Choice awards, and winning the top prize, it seems Michael Downer may be one of the most lauded producers by the Young Gun of Wine Awards
Downer cut his teeth at Shaw & Smith, Vietti in Barolo and Best’s Great Western before returning home to take over the everyday running of the family estate in 2012. He quickly burst onto the scene with his adventurous small-batch Artisan series, working with fruit from exceptional parcels in the Adelaide Hills. And, while this series continues to showcase Downer’s exceptional eye for quality fruit and progressive winemaking chops, he’s never lost sight of his transition from winemaker to grower, which he believes will come to define his career at Murdoch Hill.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot (plus 8% tannat and 2% Syrah) from Murdoch Hill's Oakbank and Lenswood vineyards in the Adelaide Hills respectively. 

"Aromas of red cherries, ground cooking spice, dried herbs and bark. Medium- to full-bodied with silky, fruit-soaked tannins. Rather expressive and bright with driving acidity and lovely spicy complexity. Lingering and steady." 93pts | Nick Stock |
