Sourced exclusively from our Barossa Valley vineyards, the Medley remains the same classic Southern Rhone blend of the three noble varieties, Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. The 2012 vintage was characterised by warm days and cool nights, perfectly suited to fully ripening the later Grenache and Mataro varieties.
Fermenting on skins until dryness, basket pressing and maturing in seasoned French oak casks for sixteen months has further enhanced the blends unique regional expression and varietal synergy. The Medley is a timeless blend and an ideal accompaniment to food as the earthy flavours and gentle tannins tend to compliment rather than dominate the senses.
Deep red in colour with vibrant crimson hues.
The tempting aromas of earthiness, kitchen spices, liquorice and tar flood the nose.
An evocative and textural palate, bringing together the dark chocolate, earthiness and fresh tar notes from the nose with the flavours of spicy French oak and gentle tannins in a perfectly balanced finish. A wine easily savored whilst young but will further impress after a few years in the cellar.
