The Artisan Series by Murdoch Hill is an exclusive range of handmade wines. These wines are made in small batches from a diverse range of vineyard sites throughout the Adelaide Hills.

Michael crafts the wines from vineyard to bottle using a minimalistic approach, utilising indigenous yeast, whole bunch fermentation and extended skin contact to best express the fruit and unique characters of each distinguished vineyard.


SMALL BATCH + MADE BY HAND


THE STORY BEHIND THE LABEL

Two brothers; one a Winemaker the other a Designer both working on the family farm at Oakbank, decided to create a series of wines that captured the timeless qualities of craft and precision.

Michael’s brother Andrew designed the labels for these limited release wines developing the concept as a tribute to their grandfather T E Downer (1913 – 1984), a passionate collector of horse drawn vehicles. Each wine is named after a carriage type that reflects the wine’s style.
