Licorice and spice, and fresh plums with red fruits and some floral notes driving the nose of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied and fine, controlled by talc-like tannins woven into a persistent and pleasant red berry, mulberry fruit finish. With tremendous poise and elegance, the 2016 Medhurst Shiraz will continue to improve with careful cellaring for over the next 5-8 years. Ideally matched with grass fed Rib eyes over charcoal, roast kipflers and rosemary with fresh greens
Farm and Vineyard sits on the ancient mountain derived soils of the Gruyere sub-region in the heart of the Yarra Valley. The 150 hectare property was planted to 12.3 hectares of vines in 2000, with blocks ranging from 130 to 208m altitude. The six blocks were specifically chosen to suit each variety planted; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Aspect, soil type and sun exposure are all maximised to produce wines of exceptional poise, balance and character. Winemaker Simon Steele ensures the vineyard and the wines are cared for by hand with great attention to detail and bottled on-site.
