R Wines was founded by American importer Dan Philips (The Grateful Palate) and Australian winemaker Chris Ringland. Winemakers for R Wines included Chris Ringland, Lisa Wetherell, Andrew Hercock, and John Hughes. The R Wines label consisted of four family labels, Marquis Philips, 3 Rings, Roogle, and Bitch, along with 13 others created especially for R Wines. Vintages were released between 2004 and 2008; the company went into receivership in 2010

This wine is sourced from a single old vine vineyard from what we consider one of the Barossa Valleys finest growers 2008 was one of the standout vintages of the last decade. An ideal vintage which gave us the benefit of perfectly, ripened fruit. The smooth flow of vintage allowed us to select specific fruit parcels and allowed us to define the wine as much in the vineyard as the winery. These grapes are brought into the winery and crushed into old vats where the fermentation is initiated by wild yeasts found on the grape skins. Careful extraction and short post fermentation maceration is followed by soft pressing. The wine is transferred into brand new oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation is completed before racking and maturation for 48 months in barrels. A careful assemblage and barrel selection is followed by minimal filtration and bottling.
