All up, it’s a wonderful drink, full of vitality and detail. Not too cold, is the advice.
About The Wine
The second release of Hamish Young's Mada Wines Riesling is a great follow up to the 2016.
Again, Hamish has played around with some skin contact and egg fermentation to amp-up the mouthfeel in this sizzling Murrumbateman Riesling. It's a little finer and tighter in style than the inaugural release and Hamish prefers this vintage to its predecessor.
This is a smashing release from Hamish, a Canberra Riesling that feels electric to drink. Get some while you can, there's very little of this available and the Mada Wines are in high demand.
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 of Canberra which is 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."
