Masterstroke: Regional Discovery and Winemaking Artistry

Mitchell Taylor once declared | “Winemaking is a true art form | each bottle an expression of a region and vineyard site”.

But at Taylors | every wine we craft is born from an original masterstroke: a decision that changed the course of Australian winemaking.&nbspMitchell’s grandfather | Bill Taylor Snr had extraordinary vision and recognised the potential to craft wines from Australia that rivalled the best in the world.&nbspHis son Bill turned that vision into reality and forged a pioneering path for the local wine industry. In doing so he also instilled in our winemaking a fundamental understanding: that Australia’s regional diversity is an unending source of discovery and inspiration.

South Australia is home to 18 wine regions | is renowned for producing many of the best wines of Australia and is a member of the prestigious group of Great Wine Capitals of The World.

The Clare Valley&nbsp

A masterstroke decision really.

We believe we have accomplished that with the 2016 Masterstroke Cabernet Shiraz.

McLaren Vale&nbsp

Our enduring ties to The Vale began almost two decades ago as we first began to explore beyond our home in the Clare Valley and discovered the magic of the region’s Mediterranean climate.

The vineyard | located in a protected gully towards the southernmost end of the region delivers Shiraz that typifies the magic of the Mediterranean climatewarm and welcoming. Much like the locals. Our challenge is to honour the fruit of our partner’s labours. And so we’ve crafted a wine that is densely packed with rich | ripe flavours and indulgent in its sumptuous generosity.&nbsp


The fruit sourced for the 2019 Masterstroke Cabernet Sauvignon is the product of decade’s long term partnership and collaboration.&nbsp

This wine continues our family’s tribute to a classically noble variety.

Aside from the beautiful liquid in the bottle | each Masterstroke label will showcase an artistic depiction of the region that is the source of the wine.&nbspThe first vintage releases feature extraordinarily striking images courtesy of award winning professional landscape photographer from South Australia | Ben Goode.

The Taylor family are now excited to share their regional exploration journey and winemaking artistry with you through these new release Masterstroke wines.
