Our Guest Speaker
Mark Richardson was born and bred in the Hunter Valley. His first working vintage was for boutique Hunter producer “Allandale Winery”, where he worked from 1991 to 1993 whilst completing his studies at Roseworthy Agricultural College. He also worked at Domaine Chandon in the Yarra Valley and in Chianti Rufina, Tuscany, Italy. Tyrrell’s expanded its shiraz portfolio in 1994, investing in vineyards outside the Hunter Valley for the first time. In the same year, Mark joined Tyrrell’s as the assistant winemaker. Since then, Mark has helped nurture the vineyards and craft red wines under the acclaimed Rufus Stone label. Mark is in charge of all red wine production at Tyrrell’s, and as such is the custodian of the big oak vats, balancing tradition with evolution. In 2009, Mark was named Winemaker of the Year by Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh’ Big Red Wine Book 2009/10. “Mark Richardson is an Australian winemaking star. He has been making wine at Tyrrell’s since 1994, and in the past few years he has put a new lease of life into all the reds released under the Tyrrell’s name. Around the winery they call it ‘re-inventing the classics’, which means combining the best of modern, clean winemaking with the best of traditional techniques. Depending on the grapes he’s working with, Mark Richardson makes great, deftly handled reds in the lighter style as well as rich, heart-thumping reds in the seductive style. Australian wine would do well to take a few leaves from Mark Richardson’s winemaking book.” Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh.
