This wine seems to be getting more and more elegant with each release.
About the Wine
Mayford only produce three wines; 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.
Their Chardonnay is for those who like a more voluptuous style of Chardonnay. There is a lot of wine here. Careful fruit selection and meticulous winemaking converging from Eleana Anderson. It makes for cracking wine with inherent balance and great flavour.
The 2016 received 95 points from James Halliday and will satisfy those who look for Chardonnay with weight and presence.
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 four wines from their bucolic estate; Chardonnay, Shiraz, one of the country’s best Tempranillo and a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet which shows immense promise.
Bryan tends the vines, Eleana makes the wines. From the vine to the bottle, this couple do it all themselves. Small batches of wine with only quality in mind.
A jewel in the crown for the Alpine Valleys and Porepunkah region.
