Mallee Estate Range

ShirazHand crafted from vines planted in 1970 at the Markeas family vineyards, which are surrounded by Mallee country. Yields have been kept low to ensure intense flavour in the berries and to express the fine terroir, which has stood the test of time.The nose has hints of vanilla and chocolate and the palate shows full fruit flavour, subtle French oak and develops to a warm, soft finish. This is a medium-bodied wine that is excellent drinking now.

Carbernet SauvignonHand crafted from the Markeas family vineyards, which are surrounded by Mallee country. The yields have been kept low through careful pruning and management to ensure the terrior is fully expressed. The intense colour is the beginning of the complexity, as the nose has hints of vanilla and spice. The full flavoured palate offers herbaceous and black current characters, which are balanced with 12 months of American Oak maturation. The fine grain tannins lead to a long-soft finish to be remembered. This is a full-bodied wine that is great drinking now or can be cellared for further ageing.

TempranilloHand crafted from vines planted in 2000 at the Markeas family vineyards, which are surrounded by Mallee country. The yields have been kept low for this interesting new varietal to ensure its character is fully expressed. Purple in colour with a violet hue, the nose has hints of wild berries and plums. The full flavoured palate offers earthy and dark cherry characters, which are balanced with 12 months of American oak maturation. The fine velvety tannins lead to a pleasant soft finish. This is a medium-bodied wine that is great drinking now and is an ideal accompaniment to pork and game dishes.

ChardonnayHand crafted from vines planted in 1978 at the Markeas family vineyards, which are surrounded by Mallee country. Golden straw in colour with green tinges, the nose offers a complex of ripe peaches and tropical fruit. The fresh palate has an abundance of zingy fruit with subtle French Oak  that leads to a crisp-soft finish. This is a great drinking wine and is an excellent accompaniment to chicken and seafood on the BBQ.

Riesling Hand crafted from vines planted in 2001 at the Markeas family vineyards, which are surrounded by Mallee country. Straw yellow in colour with green tinges, the nose offers an assortment of floral and fragrant flavours. The palate is crisp and savoury, balanced with a soft fruity finish.
