    Winemaker's Notes:

    Marquis Philips is a collaboration between Australian winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis and USA importer Dan Philips to produce exceptional wines. The mythological creature on our front label, the Roogle, represents the lasting friendship and the shared destiny that link our two countries.

    In order to develop maximum complexity in all the wines S&S developed a vineyard water deficit management program that allows us to maximise all of the potential flavour and texture available in each of our vineyards. They carefully harvest each selected area of grapes and transport them to the winery to be crushed and start their yeast fermentation. The grapes after being fermented in a long cool primary ferment are pressed into new barrels at 4 Baume. The wine completes the primary and malolactic fermentation in barrel, which is paramount to achieve the start of the integrated complexity that are achieved.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2003 Shiraz 9 is a flamboyant, opaque purple-colored, full-bodied effort revealing notes of espresso roast, chocolate, smoked meats, and toasty American oak. Fleshy, full-throttle, pure, and intensely concentrated, it is a classic South Australian Shiraz...

    The Wine Advocate

    Smooth and generous, laden with a range of sweet spices, including cassis and anise, with hints of caramel against ripe plum flavors on the finish.
