At Murray Street Vineyards, hand crafting small batches of wine in the tradition of the earliest settlers is a passion
Murray Street vineyards, winery and tasting room are located at Greenock in the western Barossa, a part of the beautiful landscape tapestry of the region. Winemaker Andrew Seppelt, together with a small team of friends and family, produce wine that conveys the rich viticultural traditions of the Barossa â€“ Shiraz and Shiraz blends, Eden Valley Riesling â€“ and forges fresh ground with varieties new to the region â€“ Viognier and Marsanne. Murray Street Vineyards was established in 2001 by Andrew & Vanessa Seppelt and Bill & Pattie Jahnke, who shared a dream of creating unique artisan wines that would sustainably honour the Barossaâ€™s rich winemaking heritage. And they wanted to provide an extraordinary and enriching experience for visitors from around Australia and around the globe.
In 2004, the Tasting Room and Cellars were built in Greenock. Influenced by early Barossa architecture, these buildings fulfill the dream of offering a truly rewarding experience for the wine lover. The outlook has been steadily climbing since then, with increasing international recognition for our wines. The team has grown to include some of the regionâ€™s most talented and dynamic personalities as Murray Street continue to strive for the extraordinary. Situated on an elevated spot overlooking the hamlet of Greenock, the winery was designed to blend into its environment, taking pains to create a design with a sense of place. Thus, the winery operates within walls that feature architectural elements reminiscent of Greenockâ€™s heritage, concealing the sights and sounds of a working vintage.
Murray Street was a share farmed vineyard prior to the purchase in 2001. Further Mataro and Durif plantings in beginning in 2002 Year established 1948 and 1998. Total property is 13 hectares. Varieties include Shiraz, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and Durif. The site is operated as a traditional dry grown vineyard, however irrigation to Semillon established in 2007 due to lowering of annual rainfall.
Soil types at the Murray Street Estate's Greenock property are light clay loam to medium clay loam over medium clay. The property is on slightly undulating ground with a water course (dry) through the middle of the block. All trellised vines run in an East/West direction with the exception of Mataro planted along contour lines.
Minimal intervention occurs with the entire vineyard mulched (completed in 2008) and a permanent mid row sward of native grasses is encouraged. Winter daily average of maximum of 13.9Â° and minimum of 4.8Â°. Summer daily average minimum of 13.1Â° and maximum of 27.9Â°.
Gomersal Vineyard marked the beginning of Murray Street Vineyards and the partnership between Bill and Pattie Jahnke and Andrew and Vanessa Seppelt. Although the land was used for sheep grazing prior to MSV vineyard development, there was a time when vines did happily grow on the same soil. In 1856 the family Hoklas grew Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz vines. Unfortunately they were pulled out in 1972 because they only grew one tonne per acre. Today it is seen as ideal and makes for great wine. Total property 130 acres with 90 acres planted to vines. The remaining land is slowly been revegetated with MSV implementing its program immediately. Varieties are Shiraz, Viognier, Marsanne, Zinfandel and Primitivo. Soil types are light sandy clay loam to clay loam over light medium clay to medium clay, irrigated with water supplied through BIL water scheme. 50% of the property (shiraz) is trellised to a north-south aspect across north facing hill slope. 50% of property (shiraz and remaining varieties) trellised to an east-west aspect across the east facing hill slope. Winter daily average of maximum of 15.5Â° and minimum of 5.8Â° Summer daily average minimum of 14.5Â° and maximum of 29.5Â°
A glass of MSV isnâ€™t simply a statement about fine wine, it is the beginning of a conversation. Named Best Cellar Door in the Barossa at the Barossa Cellar Circle Awards. The Tasting Room, Barrel Theatre and small batch Winery were constructed in 2004 by local artisan stonemasons in the style of Barossaâ€™s early settlers. Drink in the vineyard views from a number of great vantage points â€“ indoors on comfortable lounges or at outdoor tables shaded by the grapevine arbor â€“ while you enjoy a personal guided tasting, tailored to your taste and interests. Take a break from your schedule to enjoy a glass of MSV along with one of our regional food platters, all sourced from local artisan producers.
