About The Wine

Hamish Young's second release of the Mada Wines Shiraz is a very seductive wine.

The fruit comes from two vineyards in the Murrumbateman area, one providing incredible perfume, one contributing underlying power. Around one 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 of Canberra which is shaking up the regional scene.

The Wine Front

"This is proper gear. The wine drags an anchor through the regional character. Well done that Hamish Young. Couldn’t find bottle image, sorry. Spicy, fragrant start to the wine. Red berries/cherries, boysenberry, sage leaf, clove, pepper all jostling in the bouquet. Very nice. Silky textured, fresh feeling, good inward concentration and superior glide. Supple, succulent, vibrant, elegant and seamless yet with a healthy wild edge that feels compelling in the mix of more classic characters. Very good gear." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Fruit

A blend of both sites with each vineyard providing its own unique characteristics to the wine. Neither site is 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.
