What can you tell us about your flag­ship wine? The Marked Tree Red Shi­raz won the ‘Red Wine of Prove­nance’ Tro­phy at the 2016 Na­tional Wine Show of Aus­tralia. This award recog­nises con­sis­tency of qual­ity and style over suc­ces­sive vin­tages. The Marked Tree Red is a great ex­am­ple of the medium-weighted, fra­grant and spice-driven style of shi­raz for which the Can­berra Dis­trict is fa­mous.
