A variety of fermentation techniques were utilised, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 15 to 20 days. A cold soak period of up to 5 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation. Upon completion the ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The Marschall Family vineyards are located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard is grown on sandy soils which typically produce aromatic styled Shiraz, while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer produce a more dense fruit core and structured styled wine.
The winery takes its name from the two partners, Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham, who both learnt and refined their crafts over the years in the vineyards and cellars of the Eden Valley, the Barossa’s high country. Their passion is dedicated to crafting wines of unquestionable quality from the grapes of some of the Barossa’s most treasured vineyards.
