Here you have an unconventional take on a very conventional Australian blend - Shiraz Cabernet. A delectable light red made by a delectable pair - CLO and Scintilla. CLO made the Shiraz component and Scintilla made the Cabernet component. The Shiraz was 100% whole bunch fermented for 8 days without disturbance and the Cabernet was direct pressed taking only the white juice inside the berries. The blended wine is so much fun! Bright, juicy, neon flavours tantalise the senses in this light and energetic red. Slick yet fresh - L'Anglore-esk?? Get your hands on this one people, it could be a one off!
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
