Overview

Marmaduke is a Shiraz sourced exclusively from Margaret River. The aim is to produce a fruit forward, soft and spicy red wine, which exhibits the regional expression of Margaret River and varietal intensity of shiraz. Rich juicy berries with pepper and spice are the hallmark characteristics of this wine. The majority of the Shiraz was grown on Cape Mentelle’s Crossroads vineyard located south of the hamlet of Witchcliffe within the Margaret River appellation. The soils are derived from decomposed granite and consist of a gravelly loam over a deep clay subsoil. All vines are vertically shoot positioned and managed to ensure balanced growth during the season.
