About The Wine
Eleana and Bryan at Mayford in Porepunkah produce some of the finest boutique wines in the Alpine Valleys. Their small vineyard in Porepunkah consistently produces fruit of epic intensity and utter class.
The 2016 season brought with it some challenges. An intense storm took out half of the Mayford vineyard, the production of this wine is about half of what is typical for Eleana, but the quality remains outstanding.
The beauty of a cool climate combined with the power of fruit ripened in a warmer year.
It's a brilliant combination and one that has been perfectly realised by Eleana. Kudos.
Mayford has been a work in progress since 1995, it is now considered 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.
