About the producer: Murdoch Hill has been in the Downer family since 1939 but vines were first planted here only in 1998. The farm is on the eastern side of the Adelaide Hills in the Onkaparinga Valley, with 21 hectares of vineyard on shallow red loam soils packed with schist and limestone and up to 516 metres above sea level. Since taking over the winemaking reins in 2012, Michael Downer has taken the farm’s wines to similar heights. The 2017 Young Gun of Wine started his career at Shaw + Smith before a stint at Vietti in Barolo, returning to work at Revenir alongside Peter Leske & Taras Ochota. There’s a lot to enjoy here from estategrown classics to Michael’s cutting-edge Artisan Series, with grapes sourced from similarly cool climes in the Adelaide Hills.
