Medhurst Winery – boutique wines
As you may be aware Lumo Energy is shining a spotlight on Yarra Valley by being a major partner of Flavour Exchange spring. It has taken a hands on approach to understand how our finest produce is made and the challenges that are faced and sent staff to assist Medhurst Wines.
Medhurst Wines is the realisation of the long held and shared vision of Ross and Robyn Wilson to make wines of provenance. The Medhurst Vineyard was chosen for its favourable microclimate, north facing slopes, good drainage and magnificent aspect. It was planted in 2000 with chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz.
The sole objective is to make the best wine possible, careful vineyard management ensures yields are low, averaging two tonnes per acre and providing intensely flavoured fruit. Each parcel of fruit receives the same care and attention in the winery as in the vineyard. The wines that result are released only when they are ready and are of the standard to which Medhurst is committed. At all times quality is paramount.
Its new state of the art winery, designed by Folk Architects, recently won the Victorian Architectural Award for commercial design. The winery features underground barrel storage and sits in harmony with its hillside setting.
The Wilson family are committed to Medhurst. It’s a long term journey and as the vines age the wines will continue to evolve. They will always be the best wines that can possibly be made from the Medhurst vineyard.
