Mada Wines Canberra District Shiraz 2017
Fruit Grown by
- Will Bruce, Nanima Valley, Canberra District
- Neil McGregor, Yass River, Canberra District
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.
Hand Picked and fermented with 30% whole bunch. Mostly matured in barriques (15% new).
