“A candidate for Australia’s best tempranillo.”

“Mayford has morphed into one of the leading lights when it comes to Australian tempranillo…”

Jane Faulkner, Wine Matters

“Chief of Judges Trophy”

2017 North East Wine Challenge

Released October 2017

A major hail event in late November together with warm, dry conditions over the ripening season in 2016 resulted in very small volumes of delicious Tempranillo.

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 earthy and dark with black cherry, beetroot, crushed herb, carob and spice aromas. It has plush red fruits, good depth and flavor intensity and a juiciness and relatively soft tannins that make it more approachable as a young wine than many Mayford releases. Limited volumes. Drink 2018-2024.

Bottled under screwcap.
