Mayford Shiraz 2015 – 96 Points
Porepunkah Shiraz, re-defined.
Mayford shiraz has been a beautiful thing on many occasions but this release arguably takes the cake. It shifts the conversation slightly. It feels finer, longer, more confident, more Burgundian. Cherries, chocolate, coffee and sweet spices, and ample quantities of each, all come as a seamless whole; there’s no jostling here, the flavours come as a team. There’s a raspberried brightness; a meatiness too. The flavours then all ripple through the tannin like a creek through rapids. We have ourselves something special here.
