Medhurst Reserve Shiraz 2012
This is classic cool climate Shiraz; lean and elegant, yet smooth, complex and focussed. If you’re a fan of cool climate Shiraz you’ll love this stylish, tightly bound and absolutely delicious wine.
“Cool climate shiraz, dressed to kill. This is a wine of polish, complexity, sinewy tannin and serious persistence, all within an inherently savoury context. It tastes of walnuts, red and black cherries, smoky oak and sweet fresh herbs, the combination at once sophisticated and delicious. It's the first release of a Reserve Shiraz for Medhurst; the bar has been set at the top.” 96 points, James Halliday.
And just to confirm what a ‘must have’ this is, Halliday also gave it a Special Value Rating, which is virtually unheard of for a wine of this rating and price.
