"An estate blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz from ’00-planted D and E Blocks. The faint salmon hue reflects the whole-bunch pressing used to make this a purpose-built wine from the ground up."
95 points, James Halliday Wine Companion as well as a Special Value Rating.
"Very pale copper with a bright vibrant pink hue. Deliciously elusive fresh fruits including strawberry and raspberry are supported by tropical fruits and the white blossom of jasmine. The palate is savoury and refined with a supple creamy texture. The finish to the wine is superb, fresh fruits lovley roundness and weight and a long chalky delicate line that is the trademark of this single vineyard wine." Winemaker's notes.
Medhurst owner Ross Wilson is a major fan of rosé - so much so that in 2000 he had a dedicated rosé vineyard planted with shiraz and cabernet. Most estates treat rosé as an afterthought.
