Chardonnay - Verdelho. Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Direct pressed organic Chardonnay from Mt compass & biodynamic Verdelho from McLaren Vale aged in old french barriques for 12 months on fine lees.create this ode to the old school Aussie “White Burgundy” or as we know it these day as “Classic Dry White”.
Having worked as a Sommelier & with a long history working vintages in the Hills since 2011, James Madden started making his own wine in 2017.
Working out of Schulkin’s shed in Ashton alongside Architects of Wine’s Dave Caporaletti, James's focus is on sourcing the right organic fruit and he refuses to use any sulphur in the wines. The approach he takes is experimental, playful and fun. The wines are anything but normal for the grape variety that is on offer, but will never disappoint.
