Creating fine wine is evidenced by the daily tending and non-commercial hand crafting of our vines and time-honoured wine making methods, such as open vat fermenters, hand plunging and barrel fermentation, all grapes are individually picked and inspected. As traditional handmade winemaking methods are far gentler than the modern techniques often utilised by large commercial operations; The Murrumbateman Winery is at a distinct advantage as a boutique establishment.

In 1994 my wife and I travelled to Australia with a WINO (Wine Initiation for Novices and Oenophiles) group. After taking the tour of the Murrumbateman Winery we purchased a bottle of the 1993 Shiraz and a bottle of Port. We have kept both cellared for 12 years. This evening, December 1st, 2006, we celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary, and opened the treasured bottle of 1993 Shiraz. It was a wonderful way to celebrate our special day! We can't say enoough good things about this wine. It aged wonderfully, was very soft on the palette with an incredible bouquet and balance. The finish lingered with hints of berries and tobacco. Our only regret is that we did not purchase a case of this fine wine. We have yet to savor the bottle of Port, which we will do on our 50th wedding anniversary. Thanks to the Murrumbateman Winery for your hospitality, as well as creating such fine wines. William & Catherine Hooper Roseville, California,read more
