“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.”.
Released October 2018
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 Shiraz.
Selectively hand-picked in small parcels over the first weeks of March in 2016. Some whole bunch influence has brought floral and spice characters to the brooding dark berry fruit. New clonal plantings contribute complexity, perfume and fragrance- the original 23 year old shiraz block bringing maturity, depth and power. Time on lees and extended post-fermentation maceration yielded earthy notes and a firm tannic core.
A limited release of the 2016 Shiraz from the vines that survived the hail storm. Perfumed, savoury and plush- and in excruciatingly small volumes. Get in quickly to ensure that your Mayford Shiraz collection is complete. Drink 2018-2026.
Bottled under screwcap.
