Mayford 2015 Tempranillo

“A candidate for Australia’s best tempranillo.”

Huon Hooke, www.huonhooke.com

“The 2015 [tempranillo] is off the charts.”

Anthony D’Anna, Boccacio Cellars Newsletter

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

Jane Faulkner, Wine Matters

$36.00 (OUT OF STOCK)

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.

Mayford 2015 Chardonnay

“Stonefruit, pears, gunsmoke, grapefruit and spice. A flinty edge. It’s a beauty.”

Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

“While Mayford’s tempranillo usually takes centre stage, its chardonnay has well and truly found its groove.”

Jane Faulkner, Wine Matters

$36.00 (OUT OF STOCK)

Released October 2016

 

The 2015 vintage was mild and dry, producing outstanding wines across the board, with great aromatics, natural acid and elegant structure. These are wines that will age magnificently for many years to come

 

Chardonnay was hand-picked in small lots over a number of weeks, then whole bunch pressed direct to barrel and allowed to ferment naturally in French oak barriques (20% new). Partial malolactic fermentation was encouraged to build more generous and complex structure, and lees stirring for freshness and a creamy, curd texture. Total barrel maturation time was twelve months.
Trademark grapefruit and citronella aromas are fore with background notes of oatmeal, roasted nuts and struck match. It has a soft, textural palate with spicy oak and fine, natural acidity. A polished and elegant style of Chardonnay with flinty, leesy elements lending complexity.

 

Bottled under screwcap.

shiraz-mayford-2014-1

Mayford 2014 Shiraz

“It just has that little more power, and yet that little more finesse. This is arguably the finest Mayford Shiraz to date”.

Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

“Mayford is one of the best producers of cool climate Shiraz in Australia: up with the likes of Giaconda and Clonakilla for their Porepunkah Shiraz.”

Anthony D’Anna, Boccacio Cellars Newsletter

Warm, dry conditions in 2014 produced densely structured and serious Shiraz that will reward cellaring.

 

Hand-picked in small parcels over the first three weeks of March in 2014, the Shiraz came off in perfect condition. Some whole bunch influence has brought floral and spice characters to the brooding dark berry fruit.  Time on lees and extended post-fermentation maceration contributed earthy notes and a firm tannic core, which should see this wine live well into the future.

 

Exotic florals, violets and musk are coupled with a powerful depth of flavour. A fleshy mid palate of brooding black cherry and plum is laced with spice, toasty nuances and a lick of crushed herb.  The essence of this wine is the firm, tannic core which gives drive and structure.

 

Bottled under screwcap.
