Tasting Notes

A new cuvee! A young orange wine style. Certified biodynamic Verdelho picked and de stemmed and open top fermented with twice daily cap depressions. After 2 weeks it was gently pressed to tank. Organic Chardonnay was handled the same way and added to the Verdelho. Racked off gross lees to three 7 year old french hogsheads to rest on fine lees. Racked and bottled with no additions. Citrus, green apple and honeydew melon freshness. Fine and soft tannins leads to a savoury finish. - Winery Note

James Madden is a friend and a hell of a personality. His wines aren't much different really... The vineyards are all farmed organically in McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills (some by James himself) and a bare minimum is done to interfere with the wines natural course. No additions, no subtractions, just fermented juice. James comes from a hospitality background where he worked all over the country running bars and restaurants until he caught the winemaking bug like so many of us. He is pretty much self taught but does pull knowledge from his handful of vintages with James Erskine (Jauma), Alex Schulkin (The Other Right) and Anton von Klopper (Lucy Margaux). I have lots of love for these wines and I can't wait to see the journey James takes us on. - Chris L

Mary's new favourite wine

Mary normally drinks Chardonnay. We dined at Agrarian Kitchen in Tasmania and the only wine by the glass that included Chardonnay was the Scintilla Noontide. It was totally different to what Mary normally drinks, but a wine she was immediately taken by. The only place I could source it on line was Annandale Cellars and I am so grateful to have procured the last six bottles that were in stock. It is great to find a retailer like Annandale Cellars that features small producers with idiosyncratic wine styles. A big thank you to Annandale Cellars. (Wish I lived in Sydney. No I don't mean that because I couldn't afford a Harbourside Mansion. Wish Annandale Cellars was in Melbourne!)
