Mayford Ovens Crossing 2015

“Ovens Crossing” is the former name of Porepunkah, the home of Mayford. As fond as I am of the Porepunkah name, I think I might just prefer Ovens Crossing. This is a blend of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon. It won’t be released until July 2017.

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.
