Here are a couple of our team members, it takes a village to make a wine so there are plenty more in the bunch that are not shown here. We are a tight knit crew who are all driven to produce excellence and have a few glasses of wine and a long lunch along the way.
Jo has been making wine with McPherson Wines for coming up to 20 years. She believes in the beauty of balance, both in life and in wine, which shines through in her elegant wines that we love to drink. #jonash
Our Liv has been with us for eight years and she is an absolute superstar. We are so lucky to have her as part of our McPherson Wines Team. Here’s a little share from Liv about her favourite McPherson Wines.
Depending on the season…..
Summer time: Our McPherson Family Catriona Chardonnay, it’s always a little surprise when I pour myself a glass with the aroma jumping out at you. Seeing the vines shoot and grow right from my desk and being able to drink the wine a few months later is very satisfying! It is one of the hidden gems among McPherson Wines, quietly underrated and personally cherished.
The MWC Shiraz Mourvedre is one of my favourite to make, all the parcels are made separately maturing on French oak, quietly getting themselves prepared for the big blending day. When blending day arrives, all of the carefully curated grape selections are arranged on the bench ready and waiting. As winemakers we then get to have some fun exploring the different options together to bring out the best of the different vineyards. The outcome can often surprise you in the most captivating way. Drinking it brings back memories of the grapes arriving into the winery and the excited anticipation of putting this blend together 18 or so months later.
