About The Wine
Both Eleana Anderson from Mayford and Jo Marsh from Billy Button have an affinity with Tempranillo.
The two friends have both helped put the Alpine Valleys on the map as an Australian home for the variety. When the two had a chance to work on the white Spanish variety, Albarino, the pair jumped at it.
It's made very simply, half of the fruit was fermented in stainless, the other half was aged in barrel on lees for six months before being bottled.
Two friends, one variety. It has turned out a treat. Keep an eye out for their collaborative Tempranillo which is also due to be released soon.
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.
