Light and lean, lip-smacking stuff... Lovely stuff to drink.

About the Wine

James Hamilton is making plenty of waves with his small estate grown Adelaide Hills-based operation. And rightfully so, the wines are stylish, accessible and widely appealing. In short, he's killing it.

Here's his Beach Bum Rosé made from Pinot Noir grown on his father's block.

It's the perfect pink to tuck in the esky for a day of beach cricket with friends.

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.

The Wine Front

Light and lean, lip-smacking stuff. Pink in glass. Rose water, young strawberry, faint herb n spice notes. The palate is delicate, just kissed with white flesh strawberry and cranberry pleasing sour tang. Has a little chalkiness for added interest, and to dry the palate gently. Just so. Lovely stuff to drink.“ - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
