One of the wineries we've been following closely is Adelaide Hills winery, Murdoch Hill. And now their winemaker, Michael Downer, has been awarded the Young Gun of Wine Award for 2017.
We were first introduced to Murdoch Hill wines via a street party in Adelaide a couple of years ago. The wines were impressive and we got to chatting to Andrew Downer, marketing guru at Murdoch Hill and Michael's brother. One thing led to another and a few weeks later we were up in 'the shed' with a group of friends trying their spectacular drops plus barrel samples and chatting all things wine with the brothers.
After tying the award for 'Winemakers Choice' in 2015 and winning it outright in 2016, the next logical step was obviously to win the big one...
Young Gun of Wine in 2017.
Now we're happy to be ranging our favourites from their list and to be sharing the goodness that is Murdoch Hill with our winelovers! We love these wines and they are highly regarded by the guys from The Wine Front, who we source most of our reviews from, as well as the public with many of the 2016 wines already SOLD OUT!
You'll find links to the wines in our store below and please pop us an email if you'd like to know more.
