“A candidate for Australia’s best tempranillo.”
“The 2015 [tempranillo] is off the charts.”
“Mayford has morphed into one of the leading lights when it comes to Australian tempranillo…”
Released October 2016
Mild, dry conditions in 2015 resulted in low-yielding and super elegant Tempranillo that will stand the test of time.
Small parcels were hand-picked and cold soaked prior to natural ferment as separate batches in open pots. Some parcels saw a percentage of stalk and whole bunch inclusion and others, extended maceration. Barrel maturation was in a range of French cooperages for twelve months on malo lees for texture and complexity.
It is a deeply fragrant wine, breathing black cherry, sarsaparilla and brambly red fruits. Alluring florals are set off by earthy, crushed herb and cigar box aromas. The palate has succulent cherry juice and dark berry flavours, a fleshy mid palate and a savoury edge, braced through by firm, varietal tannins.
Bottled under screwcap.
