Martins Hill Father Dunphy Port
Winery/Brand: Martins Hill
We named the luscious Shiraz based Vintage Port in belated honour of Father James Dunphy, who lost his life aged 30 years, June 17th 1845, when swept off his horse attempting to cross the flooded Cudgegong River, at the present location of our Martins Hill Vineyard.
Fr. Dunphy was at the end of a 4 day ride from the settlement of Harley, Western edge of the Blue Mountains, to administer Last Rites to a parishioner.
To His Memory.
