Winemaker Notes

The name Melbury is in homage to an historic area in London, where the estate owners reside much of the year. Since its debut with the 1999 vintage, the consistent hallmarks of Melbury have been plush red fruits (currants, bing cherries), redolent with spice and the scent of violets. Elegance and a supple texture define the structure of this wine. The particular exposition of this rocky 7-acre hillside vineyard is southerly overlooking Lake Hennessey, allowing the vines to capture the morning sun yet moderating afternoon temperatures.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From a higher site in the Pritchard Hill area, the 2010 Melbury appears to be prodigious, but is currently extremely backward. My notes indicate it should be forgotten for 7-10 years. With coaxing, this structured 2010 offers up aromas of blueberry liqueur, black currants, charcoal and spring flowers. It possesses gorgeous purity and remarkable incremental richness, but it is quite brooding and backward. Everything it needs for a great future is present, but patience will definitely be required.
Rating: 98+
JS 95
James Suckling
This starts off slowly and moves quickly to the back palate. Blackberry and raspberry character with hints of forest mushroom. Full body with chewy tannins at the finish. Extremely polished. Try in 2017.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Offers a dense tannic backbone, making this a well-built, firm and structured infant that shows both depth and restraint, gaining richness and dimension on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2028.
