2017 Golden Child 7pm Red

Adelaide Hills, SA

A deliciously gulp-able style of Cab Merlot from the Hamilton family in Adelaide Hills.



About the Wine

Golden Child is looking at classic Adelaide Hills varieties and blends and turning them on their head.  Here the Hamiltons go again!

The 7pm Red is a 50/50 Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot blend, but not as we know it.  It's bright and light, fresh and fragrant and with a focus on drinkability rather than cellarability. 

Cab Merlots aren't often seen in this ilk but David and James have really hit the brief here.  Delicious!

About Golden Child

Golden Child is the project of father-and-son team, David and James Hamilton.  David grows the grapes from his own vineyard in Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills, while son James uses his immense winemaking talents to bring the wines to bottle.

Having their own extensive, 20+ year old vineyard gives the Hamiltons enormous flexibility with the wines and allows James to craft some pretty unique offerings.  The fruit is all hand-picked, fermented with natural yeasts and crafted together gently and with minimum additions.

The range is wide, colourful and wholly enjoyable - this is a new Hills producer to keep an eye on.
