Murdoch Hill

Young Gun of Wine Winner - 2017 (Michael Downer)
5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"A little over 20ha of vines have been established on the undulating, gum-studded countryside of Charlie and Julie Downer's 60-year-old Erika property, 4km east of Oakbank. In descending order of importance, the varieties planted are sauvignon blanc, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. Son Michael, with a Bachelor of Oenology degree from Adelaide University, is winemaker" - James Halliday

"Our family has been farming the fertile soils of the Onkaparinga Valley since 1939 and in this time there have been many cattle grazing, hens laying, potatoes grown, flowers picked and since 1998 we have been passionately caring for our vines, and making great wines." - Murdoch Hill
