Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"The Marschall is a Barossa Valley Shiraz, named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Valley Vignerons who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. David Marschall was a man of many talents and in conjunction with growing exceptional fruit was a revered martial artist, actor and demolition expert. His legacy lives on through his vineyards within the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts, which make up the backbone of this wine.
Dense garnet in colour, with an attractive mix of blackberry, spiced plum and flickerings of star-of-anise aromas. The palate is rich, concentrated and fleshy in flavours with a fresh and vibrant finish. A modern styled Barossa Valley Shiraz, delicious drinking upon release but will mature very well for the medium term."
95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, March 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Ex 20-31yo vines; extended skin contact 20-25 days; including 5-day cold soak; wild-yeast ferment; matured in new and used barrels for 12 months, clarified and bottled without filtration. You get a generous bang for your buck with this elegant, medium-bodied shiraz, supple and fresh, with finely strung tannins and oak."

5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Rich blackberry together with spicy oak, olive, clove and a touch of cocoa on the nose, it’s concentrated and weighty with plush texture and silky tannins. Mouthfilling and deliciously long, offering gorgeous drinking. At its best: now to 2034."
