Australia – Yarra Valley
Medhurst Wines is the realisation of the long held and shared vision of Ross and Robyn Wilson to own a property in the Yarra Valley and produce high quality wines. Ross was CEO of Southcorp and drove the company’s acquisition of Penfolds, Lindemans and Wynns in 1990. He has remained passionate about wine ever since.
Ross and Robyn Wilson spent years looking for the perfect site and for many reasons they jointly decided on the Yarra Valley. Robyn Wilson spent her childhood here, and the Australian and international status of this excellent cool climate wine region and its incredible beauty, helped make their decision.
The Medhurst Vineyard was also particularly chosen for its favourable microclimate, north facing slopes, good drainage and magnificent aspect. It was planted in 2000 with chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz.
With the sole objective of making the best wine possible, careful vineyard management ensures yields are low, averaging two tonnes per acre and providing intensely flavoured fruit.
As well as each of the varieties grown – chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz – Medhurst makes a rosé from its low cropped cabernet and shiraz fruit.
With 15 hectares planted, quantities are limited but the passion and care that goes into the wines is boundless. New to the Medhurst team in 2015 is Winemaker Simon Steele. Simon was previously Chief winemaker at Brokenwood in the Hunter Valley, and before that at Shadowfax Wines.
