Who made it?

A boutique producer of premium Semillon and Shiraz, Gundog Estate engages passionate growers who deliver the highest quality fruit year on year. In the winery, the winemaking team, lead by award-winning winemaker Matt Burton, employ a thoughtful combination of new and old world practices to deliver high quality, innovative wines which balance fruit flavour and complexity whilst telling a story of the season and region. Matt firmly believes that all wine should offer drinking appeal from day one, but also have the potential to age gracefully and the Marksman’s Shiraz is the perfect illustration of this philosophy. The grapes for the Marksman’s Shiraz come from vineyards situated in Murrumbateman and the combination of the region’s loamy clay, pre-Cambrian era soils and classic continental climate of low rainfall, freezing winters and a wide temperature range during the growing months, ensure that the fruit grown is consistently of the highest quality.
