Ronnie Melck

The Story of Ronnie Melck

As a direct descendant of Martin Melck (who bought this gracious wine farm for his daughter in 1763), Ronnie fulfilled a lifelong dream by buying Muratie in 1987 - finally welcoming it back into the Melck fold and rekindling a century’s old love affair with the farm.

With his legendary palate, warm personality and instinctive flair for wine making, Ronnie is the only owner whose remains rest on Muratie, on the highest part of the farm - under the trees.

The Ronnie Melck Shiraz with its intense violet edge, sweet spiciness and floral & berry notes, pays tribute to the legendary winemaker - humble, honest and full of integrity. Matured in new and second fill barrels, this wine is lovely on release but will reach its full potential five to eight years later.
