Mur­doch Wines

“In the 1890’s Wil­liam Mur­doch served as a guards­man in the leg­endary Cold­stream reg­i­ment at Buck­ing­ham Palace, where he strived for in­tegrity, har­mony and au­then­tic­ity in all as­pects of life. I planted our vine­yards in Wil­liam’s hon­our” says Brett Mur­doch, CEO of cer­ti­fied or­ganic Wil­liam Mur­doch wines in Hawke’s Bay’s fa­mous Gim­blett Grav­els district. The phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple: no in­sec­ti­cides, no her­bi­cides, no pes­ti­cides, no sys­temic chem­i­cals and no non-or­ganic chem­i­cals. All the wines are fer­mented with wild, in­dige­nous yeasts, which oc­cur nat­u­rally in the vine­yard and in the win­ery. This means the fer­ments have not been in­tro­duced from out­side the vine­yard (i.e. in pack­ets of man-made yeast), rather they oc­cur within the prop­erty. The team at Wil­liam Mur­doch likes to re­fer to their vine­yard and win­ery meth­ods as be­ing not only ‘or­ganic’ but also ‘nat­u­ral’, mean­ing the wines are cre­ated with the least in­ter­fer­ence pos­si­ble. They don’t have a cel­lar door, but for in­for­ma­tion on where to buy visit
