About The Wine
For his serious take on Sauvignon Blanc, Hamish Young travels to the Southern side of Murrumbateman.
Around a quarter of the wine was fermented as whole berries in concrete vessels, the balance in stainless. The real key to the wine, however, is the time it spent in foudre.
The huge 1100L barrel housed the wine for six monts prior to bottling with a small percentage going through malo.
If you like your Sauvignon Blanc with a little more going on under the hood, this version from Hamish is flat out delicious.
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."
