THE MORRISSEY.
We have never produced a blend and Duke’s philosophy has always been that in any blend, one of the wines is not as good as the other. BUT after walking through the vineyard for 16 years listening to the comments made by winemakers, viticulturists, vineyard managers and other “experts” Duke has changed his mind about blends.
The comments were:
“This part of the Cabernet has a beautiful berry character.”
“This patch on top of the hill is riper than the rest.”
“This end of the rows in the shiraz has a special flavour.”
“These vines taste better than the others”
“Taste that and tell me what you think? Etc...Etc
So in 2017 Duke took some fluoro flagging tape with him and when the “EXPERTS” made the comments, he marked all the vines. And the next day they were individually picked and made as separate small batches of Shiraz and Cabernet .The wine was put in 50% new oak and kept separate before blending by taste to the final selection. The wine is named for an old friend of Dukes , Peter Morrissey, who volunteered to work in the vineyard when he had some spare time. He would arrive from Perth and spend a week doing whatever was needed in the Vineyard. He always believed in the direction the Vineyard was going and never doubted that it would produce top class wines. This beautiful “Australian “ blend will show both varieties in a warm , rich , fruit driven classic and hopefully is some reward for a great Aussie bloke.
