About The Wine

Hamish Young's Mada Shiraz is a very seductive wine.

The fruit comes from three vineyards in the Murrumbateman area, one providing incredible perfume, the other two contributing underlying power.

A third of the fruit was fermented as whole bunches, some saw time in ceramic egg to maintain freshness, and only 15% new oak used in the maturation of the wine.

This is the essence of silky, slippery Canberra Shiraz.

A wine that oozes sex appeal. Hamish has not put a foot wrong since starting his own label in 2016, and this gorgeous Shiraz is yet another notch in his belt.

About Mada Wines

Mada wines sees ex-Eden Road operational winemaker Hamish Young venture out on his own for the first time.

Sourcing fruit from some great sites across the Canberra and Hilltops regions, his first releases were a smash hit and his star continues to rise.

His wines show a fresher and more modern side of NSW wine, all about vibrant fruit and ease of drinking. He looks for texture in his aromatic whites, freshness in his delightful red wines, each release sees him refine his own 'house style' a little more.

This is a Canberra producer to watch for the future - one of the new crop shaking up the regional scene.

As Mike Bennie once said, "Mada Wines should be put on your list of wines to watch, or indeed to buy a bit of....then probably a lot of."

Additional Info

From The Producer

Fruit

A blend of three sites with each vineyard providing its own unique characteristics to the wine. Each site is not organically certified but both are grown with conscious decisions to utilising various organic and sustainable approaches.

Yass River - North facing site sitting in the northern valleys of Murrumbateman near the Yass River. Grown on granite with some shale. This site produces really perfumed, focused shiraz.

Nanima Valley - Closer to the southern end of Murrumbateman, where a lot of warm air flows through the valley. Grown on granite with a clay base. Quite a dry site and with it comes shiraz with power and brawn.

Longrail Gully - Northwest facing site at the northern edge of Murrumbateman near the Yass Plains. Grown on granite. This site produces perfumed, spicy and dense shiraz.

DDS review

Beautiful perfume, so much blueberry, iron, pepper and sweet Asian spice. Smooth and svelte with a lovely primacy to the fruit at this stage. It's smooth a silky and just a tick over medium-bodied. Pretty but powerful as well. A very nicely turned out modern version of Canberran Shiraz. - Different Drop Wine Team

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.
