About The Wine

This is a new flagship wine that sits at the top of the tree from Eleana Anderson at Mayford Wines in Porepunkah.

This unusual blend captures the essence of this special pint-sized vineyard. The Cabernet component for this wine comes from vines planted at Mayford back in 2011, this is their first chance to shine and shine they do!

The other portion of the blend is made up of the famous Mayford Tempranillo, one of the country's leading examples of the variety.

This is not a big wine but it has plenty of horsepower under the hood. Inwardly concentrated, beautifully balanced, it's a heroic release from the charming boutique wine producer.

Campbell Mattinson rated it 95 points and there were only 70 dozen made. 

About Mayford

Mayford has been a work in progress since 1995, now they are one of the leading producers in the Alpine Valley.

Setting the bar high, are Eleana Anderson and Bryan Nicholson. Very high indeed.

They only produce only a small range of wines including Chardonnay, Shiraz, and one of the country’s best Tempranillo. Everything is grown on their own estate. From the vine to the bottle, this couple does it all themselves.

Small batches of wine with only quality in mind.

A jewel in the crown for the Alpine Valleys and Porepunkah region.

Critic Reviews

95Points
The Wine Front

"It’s a beautifully balanced, flavoured and structured wine. Red/black berries, spice, mint, anise and earth. A slip of raw cedarwood. It just works. No hesitation. Curl of tannin is a ripping final flourish. I tasted this over the course of 24 hours and it hardly budged, and impressed throughout. It’s right up there with the best produced from this estate. Succulence, intensity, tautness and complexity combined." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

The first ever Mayford “Ovens Crossing” Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon was inspired by the exceptional ripening conditions of 2015. A cool and mild autumn allowed slow and complete ripening of perfectly formed, small-berried Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, all estate grown. The Tempranillo was hand-picked over late February and into early March, the cooler temperatures meaning that the fruit benefitted from hanging on the vine two to three weeks longer than usual. Low cropping Cabernet was picked in mid-March, just a week after the last of the Tempranillo.

Small parcels were cold-soaked prior to natural fermentation as separate batches in open pots with regular hand plunging. Barrel maturation (50% new) was in French barriques for twenty-two months, with some retained lees for texture and complexity.

Just seventy dozen have been made. Sporting universally glowing reviews, this wine can be purchased with great confidence and is an excellent cellaring proposition.

FaQs

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?
