The Marius Vineyard is small, only four and a half acres of Shiraz, situated on rising ground to the southeast of McLaren Vale at an elevation of 170 metres. Ideally positioned to take advantage of maritime climatic influence and the cooling gully breezes on summer evenings. All fruit is sequentially hand harvested over a schedule of ten to twenty days, ensuring parcels are picked to perfection. Mid-rows are not cultivated or tilled, the natural grasses are slashed, no pesticides are employed and the worm population is growing rapidly. Viticultural practices and sustainable land management combine to produce low yields of small bunches characterized by tiny flavoursome berries with a high skin to juice ratio.
The enthusiastic team at Marius are focused purely on growing the best possible fruit and retaining the pick of the harvest, with a view to making the best possible wine from these choice grapes. Wines of integrity which can best define the character of Shiraz grown to a unique terroir. To let the vineyard speak.
Deep dark garnet colour. A vibrant, juicy Shiraz exuding a glorious fragrance of plum, varietal spice and red fruits. Blackberries and red cherry dominate the intense palate, loads of plum, a spectrum of dark fruits, chocolate, coffee and menthol lift.

Marius Wines is a small premium wine producer in McLaren Vale

There is now a small, but growing, number of wine consumers who recognise Marius Wines as a best value producer of premium McLaren Vale Shiraz.

 Marius

Marius' winemakers are always striving to improve the quality of the fruit from their exquisite single vineyard and the grapes are now sequentially hand-picked from the various sections, over a period of 3-4 weeks, to ensure that the fruit is as close as possible to perfect at the time of harvest.

Marius Wines are now made at winemaker Mark Day's boutique winery at Blewitt Springs. Small open fermenters, traditional basket pressing and extended barrel fermentation are the tools of his craft. Mark is an integral part of our success.

"Four Star**** Winery!" -James Halliday

The Marius vineyard, which looks out across the McLaren Vale / Willunga basin and out to the Gulf of St. Vincent is blessed with a mild temperate climate and complex ironstone soils. The precious grapegrowing parcel is situated on rising ground to the south-east of McLaren Vale township, ideally positioned to take advantage of both the maritime climatic influence and the cooling gully breezes on summer evenings. The vineyard is small, being only four acres of Shiraz.

The soils range from clay through ironstone and limestone to alluvial gravels. The philosophy at Marius is to grow flavour and produce powerful wines. This is achieved by passionate and fastidious vineyard practices combining to produce low yields of small bunches of flavoursome small berries with a high skin to juice ratio.

All fruit is hand picked and this is done sequentially over approximately three weeks to ensure that all the grapes are as near as possible to perfect when picked. Mid-rows are not cultivated or tilled, the natural grasses and weeds are slashed, no pesticides are used and the industrious worm population is growing rapidly.

Blessed with good air circulation through the vineyard, Marius' spray programme utilizes the lowest level fungicides and only at high risk periods to eradicate powdery and downy mildew. Approximately thirty per cent of the vineyard has been 'throttled back' progressively over the past three years and is now dry-grown. Minimal irrigation is practiced in the remainder of the vineyard.
