    Winemaker Notes

    2009 shaped up as another high quality year in the Adelaide Hills. The early growing season had great, mild, cool conditions, a great start for quality. A very cool December caused a reduction in the grape berry size and number. Consequently our yields were down from 2008 by about 20%. This tended to promote increased flavor and concentration in the fruit we did harvest. In January, a 5 day heat wave came upon us. Due to the delayed fruit development and excellent canopies we had no damage to existing yields or quality. Cooler conditions after this maximized ripeness and flavour development.

    This wine is made with no oak and no MLF allowing the zesty varietal characters of the grape to be expressed. The nose is a myriad of fresh ripe tropical fruit aromas which are vibrant, but not overpowering. The palate is fresh and retains medium to high natural mouth watering acidity. This wine is great drinking with seafood, salads, sushi and Asian cuisine.

    Groom, Australia
    Groom Winery Image
    Marschall Groom Cellars is a very small family winery situated in the famous Barossa Valley region of South Australia. The winery produces three varietals, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz & Zinfandel - under the label GROOM.

    Marschall Groom Cellars is the culmination of a dream, backed up by many years of talk and family discussion. The proprietors are David & Jeanette Marschall and their six children, and Daryl & Lisa Groom and their four children.

    The dream started to become reality with the purchase of 87 acres of bare land in the Kalimna appellation of the Barossa Valley, directly adjacent to the renowned Penfolds Kalimna vineyard - the home of Grange. In 1997 the first acres on our Kalimna Bush Block were planted to Shiraz, producing its first crop in the 1999 vintage. To compliment our young Shiraz fruit we source from one other very reputable high quality vineyard in the Barossa, the Fechner Vineyard which is home to 50 year-old vines.

    Our desire for the GROOM label is to let the vineyards and their fruit do the talking in producing the style and quality of our wines. As proprietors, we have set the foundation in choosing the most ideal viticultural region needed to produce the highest quality for each of our chosen varieties.

    A narrow band of hills and valleys east of the city of Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills region is a diverse landscape featuring a variety of microclimates. In general it is moderate with high-altitude areas cooler and wetter compared to its warmer, lower areas.

    Piccadilly Valley, the part of Adelaide Hills closest to the city, was first staked out by a grower named Brian Croser, in the 1970s for a cool spot to grow Chardonnay, then uncommon in Australia. Today a good amount of the Chardonnay goes to winemakers outside of the region.

    Producers here experiment with other cool-climate loving aromatic varieties like Pinot Gris, Viognier and Riesling. Charming sparkling wine is also possible. On its north side, lower, west-facing slopes make full-bodied Shiraz.
