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.

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.
