2021 Medhurst Estate Rose

Yarra Valley, Vic

Grown up Yarra Valley Rose, made with intelligence, for the elegant wine lover.



Typical Medhurst class.

James Halliday (Wine Companion)

About This Wine

As pale as pale can be, this rose made from whole-bunch Cabernet and Shiraz, is a beautiful and thoughtfully made wine.

As one would expect, the wine is driven by its pretty red berry character, though the flavour profile, which is fuller than the pale colour would lead you to believe, also has some surprising tropical notes alongside some white blossoms.

Savoury, with a creamy texture, and some lovely chalkiness, this wine is simply a delight. Grown-up elegant Rose.

About Medhurst

Medhurst is one of the most beautiful wineries in the Yarra Valley. As you head up the hill past the lake and iconic red pump room to the stunning, architecturally significant cellar door, you realise you're in a special place.

Medhurst was founded by Ross and Robyn Wilson in 2000. Ross, a former CEO at Southcorp, chose the site for its aspect, drainage and microclimate. A cellar door with incredible vistas and a comforting fireplace, and a subterranean winery hidden from view, now adorn the top of the hill.

Medhurst's wines consistently rate highly with experts and the wine-drinking public, so we think you'll love them too.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2021 growing season was a true roller coaster with a great result in the end ! It began with a wet spell and a later then average budburst. Thankfully the spring weather improved in November with mild dry and warm weather allowing for perfect flowering and set. From the outset we realized the yield would be excellent and the consistency of set indicated a great year ahead. This proved the case!

Blend : Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Shiraz (45%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw Cap

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"The pale salmon hue reflects whole-bunch pressed cabernet sauvignon and shiraz, fermented off skins. Wafts of perfume float in the air, rose petals to the fore. The unexpectedly intense fruits span spices, light and dark, and small forest berries. Typical Medhurst class." James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Real Review

"Light rose-gold in the glass. Raspberry and tobacco leaf aromas. Plump raspberry fruit, layered with a hint of tomato leaf and a smoky toffee undertone. Good length and it all remains in balance with enough bright acidity to clean the finish of the fruit-weight." Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
