Sommelier-turned-winemaker James Madden has worked with the likes of James Erskine (Jauma) and Tom Shobbrook. He now shares a shed in the Basket Range with Alex Schulkin (The Other Right) to produce his own minimal intervention wines. All grapes are organic and/or biodynamic, handpicked and processed by shovel & fork. Wines are transferred by siphon using gravity, unfined, unfiltered and always zero adds.
"De-stemmed savagnin open top fermented for 5 days. Pressed with plenty of sugar and barrel fermented. Barrel remained untopped to develop a flor. 12 months in barrel and a further 16 months in bottle. Lemongrass and preserved lemons on the nose. Juicy and salty with a guppy gingerbready savoury tannins." - James Madden
