The word ‘MEDHYK’ is Cornish for doctor and it is most fitting that the pinnacle of Angove winemaking be connected to and commemorate our founder, a Cornish doctor, Dr William Thomas Angove. The winemaking philosophy behind THE MEDHYK is uncompromising McLaren Vale quality and character. This begins with exceptional vineyard sites and meticulous fruit selection. The handpicked fruit is sorted and destemmed into half tonne bins. After fermentation each parcel is basket pressed and matured in 100% new French oak barriques for up to 18 months. The assemblage is rigorous to ensure only the finest barrels make the final blend. THE MEDHYK is the flagship wine of the Angove range with releases selling out quickly. A unique benchmark Shiraz that is developing a reputation as a ‘new’ McLaren Vale icon. This exceptional wine displays the purity of variety and region that can only be found in the best grapes sourced from old vines in the acclaimed McLaren Vale region.
