Purple hues and brilliant clarity instantly attracts the eye. The nose is full of blueberry fruits and plums, some savoury charcuterie and a hint of spice. Its intense and complex, as a cool climate shiraz should be. The palate backs up the nose with a rush of energetic and powerful red and blue fruits, soft round tannins and mouthwatering natural acid. It’s a lingering and intense wine that has great presence in the glass. The 2019 Medhurst Estate Shiraz will continue to improve with careful cellaring over the next 6-10 years.
