The Medhurst Cabernet is a classic example of cool climate Cabernet with a long palate and soft tannin finish.
Blackberry, bay leaf and black olives with hints of spice and subtle floral perfumes drive the nose of the wine. The palate controlled by fine and talc-like tannins woven into a persistent and pure fruit finish. With tremendous poise and elegance, the 2016 Medhurst Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to improve with careful cellaring for over a decade. Ideally matched with locally farmed spring lamb cutlets and crisp rosemary, salted roast kipflers.
Chief Winemaker at Medhurst Wines, Yarra Valley since the beginning of 2015, previously Senior Winemaker at Brokenwood wines and over 20 vintages across several regions and countries, starting in 1996. Simon, wife Francesca and children Banjo and Juniper have embraced their move back to Victoria with open arms. Simon’s winemaking philosophy is to ‘grow wines’ with great flavour and balance from the vines on the property. In particular the focus is on long silky tannins for the red wines, and purity and energy for the whites.
Thoughtful, considered and always asking questions of the vines, the land and the season to ensure healthy vines and balanced grapes. Simon is involved as a Wine show Judge at multiple regional and national shows since 2006 and a Len Evans Tutorial Scholar.
