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. A small team of friends and family, produce wine that conveys the rich viticultural traditions of the Barossa and Shiraz and Shiraz blends, Eden Valley Riesling and forges fresh ground with varieties new to the region and Viognier and Marsanne. Murray Street Vineyards was established in 2001 by Andrew and Vanessa Seppelt and Bill and Pattie Jahnke, who shared a dream of creating unique artisan wines that would sustainably honour the Barossa'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 region'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 Greenock's heritage, concealing the sights and sounds of a working vintage.
The estate's history with viticulture dates back to 1856 when the family Hoklas established Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz vines. Unfortunately these precious old veterans were pulled out in 1972 because they could only produce one tonne of fruit per acre. Today it is seen as the ideal yield for super great wine.
The Murray Street property evolved into a share farmed vineyard just prior to its acquisition in 2001. It comprised a number of blocks planted in 1948 and 1998. Further Mataro and Durif plantings were added in 2002, the total property today is a mere 13 hectares. Varieties include Shiraz and Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and Durif. The estate is essentially operated as a traditional dry grown vineyard, though some parcels of Semillon are irrigated in years of minimal rainfall.
Gomersal Vineyard marked the beginning of Murray Street Vineyards and the partnership between Bill and Pattie Jahnke 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. 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. Minimal intervention occurs with the entire vineyard mulched and a permanent mid row sward of native grasses is encouraged. Half the property (shiraz) is trellised north to south across north facing hill slope, the other half is trellised east to west across the east facing hill slope.
A glass of MSV isn'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 Barossa's early settlers. Drink in the vineyard views from a number of great vantage points and indoors on comfortable lounges or at outdoor tables shaded by the grapevine arbor and while you enjoy a personal guided tasting, tailored to your taste and interests.
