Marquis Philips Grail of Lisa Shiraz 2005
 "In 2005 Marquis Philips made a reserve level wine that was neither Shiraz 9 nor Shiraz Integrity, but as good as both, if not better than both. The Grail of Lisa. A mind-blowing wine that takes MP to a new level and probably one of the top three wines they've ever made. It shows vibrant ripe

Marquis Philips 'Baby Roogle' Shiraz Cab 2007
87  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 87 "A blend of Shiraz and Cabernet that is quintessential Chris Ringland winemaking. Big and rich, but more complex than wines two and three times the cost. Fragrant aroma of plums, red currant and rhubarb. Textural, fleshy palate with nuances of cedar, coffee bean and dusty oak

Marquis Philips Integrity 2003

Marquis Philips Merlot 2004
87  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 87 "Merlot is a tough varietal to harness in Australia, and much of it is vegetal and unattractive. However, Marquis Philips’ 2004 Merlot is a tasty, dark ruby-hued example with sweet white chocolate characteristics intermixed with notions of road tar, black cherries, and currants.
