Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Murray Street was established in 2001 by families Seppelt and Jahnke. They shared a dream of crafting small batch artisanal wines in the tradition of Barossa Valley's early settlers. Murray Street's vineyard and wineworks are fortuitously positioned on a tapestry of beautiful rolling landscape near the ancient winemaking village of Greenock at the western end of Barossa. Working together with a small but dedicated team of friends and extended family, Messrs Seppelt and Jahnke produce small amounts of the most intensely flavoured Shiraz.
The Murray Street property lies on slightly undulating ground, all trellised vines run in an east/ west direction. Minimal intervention techniques in the vineyard preserve the natural balance of indigenous bio organisms, all clippings are mulched and a permanent mid row sward of native grasses is encouraged. The Murray Street winemaking team has grown to include some of the region's most talented and dynamic personalities as they continue to strive for the extraordinary. Individual vineyard parcels of Shiraz are separately vinified in small batch ferments. The finished wine is matured eighteen months in a selection of seasoned and new, French and American oak hogsheads.
Rich dark colour indicates intensity. Bold and succulent bouquet of brambles and plum, mocha, mulberry and mace. Lively palate of black berry fruits and plum tantalise while being well supported by chocolate and coffee nuances. An elegantly structured, thoughtful wine with generosity of flavour and palate richness, weight of fruit and extended length.
