2017 North East Wine Challenge

Released October 2018

The 2017 vintage was one from the heavens across north east Victoria.

Good winter and spring rainfall restored river flows and replenished underground water systems, leading into a cool and dry summer without massive temperature extremes. The warm days and cold nights throughout the ripening season, provided perfect conditions for ripening Tempranillo- allowing aromas to intensify and tannins to mature whilst still retaining natural acidity.

Multiple small parcels were hand-picked over the middle two weeks of March- almost a month later than the 2016 vintage. Each separate batch was chilled and cold soaked prior to natural ferment in open pots with extensive hand plunging. Some batches had a percentage of stalk and whole bunch inclusion and others, extended post ferment-maceration. Each wine was then basket pressed before being put to barrel for maturation in French barriques (25% new) for eleven months, retaining malo lees for texture and complexity.

The 2017 Tempranillo is up there with the best we have made at Mayford. Perfume leaps out of the glass, sarsaparilla, black cherry, charcuterie, raspberry and spice. The mid palate is lively with crunchy bright fruits, yet fleshy and sophisticated with deliciously long tannins, finishing both fresh and savoury. Drink 2019-2030.

Bottled under screwcap.
