Medhurst Wines Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
This is why the Yarra is considered the best cool climate Cabernet region in Australia. I love this style of wine; mid-weight and elegant - it’s lean and intense with firm but fine-grained tannins. You’ll find classic cool climate Cabernet characters of cassis and chocolate melding with hints of fennel and cedar.
“Dark cherry and plums, milk chocolate, aniseed and tobacco with light spicy pencilly oak. Medium bodied, supple, smooth and subdued, with ripe fine grained tannin, a whisper of cool acidity, and freshness and redcurrant bobbing up on its long finish. All just so. Great to see a ‘reserve wine’ that’s not shouty or trying too hard.” 93 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
If stored well, this has 10-20 years of cellaring in it. You’ll be hard pressed to find another Yarra Cabernet of this quality at this price.
