Hand picked from the famous Markos Vineyard in Woodside. The fruit was handpicked into half tonne bins and stored for 24 hours in cool rooms. It was then gently whole bunch pressed to tank. Wild fermented in a tank at low temperatures to preserve the delicate flavours. The nose and palate display white peach, lemon curd and the palate lingers with balanced acidity typical of the vintage

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

MARKO’s Vineyard was established in 1994 by Mark and Margie Hill Smith. The single vineyard is one of Australia’s most respected producers of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and more recently Shiraz and Pinot Gris.

Situated in the Adelaide Hills just outside the town of Woodside at an elevation of 410 metres.Total plantings – 27.8 ha with a variety of soil types ranging from shaly, sandy, free-draining, high in iron stone and quartz to deep sandy loams hosting four different grape varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Gris (four different clones of Chardonnay, I10V1, Bernard 76, Mendoza and Bernard 95). Our parcels of fruit receive high input viticulture, hand-pruning, shoot thinning, lateral thinning, leaf plucking, bunch-thinning, multiple wire lifts to manage the canopy, low cropping levels and hand-picking. Our holistic viticulture approach includes running sheep in the vineyard in the winter to minimise the use of sprays and soil compaction. .
