Mordrelle: 2023 Breakout Producer of the Year

Our 2023 Breakout Producer of the Year stormed onto the DD stage in April, when a slew of massive reviews from James Halliday heralded Mordrelle as one of the best value wineries to watch in South Australia right now.

Martin Moran's earliest memories are of walking through the vines of his grandfather's bucolic Malbec vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. Many years, adventures, and a PhD later he found himself working amongst the vines of the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale & Langhorne Creek.

As an Argentinian, Malbec has always had a special place in his heart, and his superb Langhorne Creek expressions were recently rated amongst the very best in the country by James Halliday. They are rich and opulent but beautifully balanced and as Mr. Halliday noted, they offer "Celestial value".

“I’m doing what I always dreamed of, following my grandfather’s legacy of winemaking in Argentina, now here in Australia, so I am very humbled to receive this recognition and thankful to have a great Aussie family that always support me. Thank you to Different Drop for this recognition, it is a great honour to be working with you."
- Martin Moran (Mordrelle)

Mordrelle has been the biggest surprise packet of the year. We are pleased to share with you today his 96-point-rated Basket Press Tempranillo, Barbera, Shiraz & Cabernet which are now all available in our Discover Mordrelle Wines Pack for just a tick over $35 a bottle alongside the excellent 97-point Malbec Lagrein blend that has been one of our most popular wines of the year, bar none!

It's an excellent selection of wines we have from Dr. Moran for you. Given the buzz around this brand we expect these to disappear in short order. Secure your stocks of this rising star in South Australia below.
