2021 Mad Hattie Light Red
Can you really be a young Australian winemaker if you aren’t showing your own hot take on a “chilled red”? Well, never fear, cause James has one right here. Mostly Grenache, smattering of Shiraz, make for plenty of tart, juicy berries, low tannin and lip-smacking acid. Looks smart with a whack of pink peppercorn to tame all that fruit. James has had a huge amount of experience working for larger Australian wineries, but has now settled down in the Adelaide HIlls with Gareth Belton at Gentle Folk, as assistant winemaker. Alongside his full time gig with G.F., he makes a few wines under his own label, Ada Wine Co. Expect great things from this exceptional pairing.
