The mythical creature on the Marquis Philips label is the Roogle. A cross between the American bald eagle and the Australian red kangaroo, it symbolizes the friendship between our countries. Marquis Philips is a collaboration between Australian winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis and USA importer Dan Philips to produce exceptional wines. Marquis Philips began as a project to make wine with the simple goal to control the entire process, soup to nuts, from concept to vineyard, to market to wine style to price.
The wines are crafted to show strong varietal definition on the nose and to have a palate structure with our distinctive hallmark of fruit length, ripe fine grain tannins and integrated balance of fruit weight, alcohol, acid and tannins. The wines are styled so that they can be consumed for both the present and also to be able to mature into the future, they will always, both young and aged, show these balanced rich fruit characteristics throughout the palate
