Medhurst 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. The cooling effect of the Warramate Ranges that sit immediately above the gentle slopes enable the wines to be expressive and unique as they ripen with natural acids and fine tannins.
Brilliant, enticing cherry red with a lovely crimson hue. The nose speaks of place, under the shadow of the Warramatte Range, complex, cherry and spice it is both detailed and abundant. The southern aspect of site and the extremely low crop has ensured a concentrated and precise wine with powerful pure fruit, though it is subtle and fine. The depth of flavour and fine tannins of this Estate pinot noir guarantees that this will be a wine that continues to build with up to 10 years of careful cellaring.
