    About the Range

    Selected vineyard rows, limited releases.

    The Season

    From a wonderful season, this is our inaugural release of the Reserve Pinot Noir. Selected from the most balanced and concentrated fruit found in the mid-slope (belly) of our front block of Pinot Noir, this particular section of the vineyard has a shallow grey clay loam soil profile allowing the vines to produce compact and even Pinot Noir bunches. Perfect for making a Reserve wine with complexity, length and balance.

    Wine Making

    Hand picked, the fruit was immediately destemmed into a small open fermenter for cold maceration. No yeast was used and once fermentation commenced the cap was hand-plunged several times each day and remained on skins for 30 days. At the completion of ferment, the wine was pressed to tank and then racked to a single French oak puncheon (500lt) for malolactic fermentation. After 11 months in barrel, the puncheon was bottled on February 15th, 2013 without fining or filtration.

    Bright ruby with a lovely crimson hue. The Medhurst Reserve Pinot Noir is a highly complex wine with plenty of red spicy fruit weaving through a fine framework of tannin and natural acid. The warmth of the season together with the extremely low crop has ensured a concentrated and precise wine, with a generous and silky finish.
