2019 Scintilla 'Baies de Cherryville' Chardonnay

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

A plot that James tends to in Cherryville, with vines planted back in 2003, it's become his pet project to nurture and work this plot with everything he has learnt along the way. 2019 was a hot year, producing prominent Chard fruit characteristics. The fruit was hand harvested and whole bunch pressed into old French oak, fermenting on lees for extra texture.

About the maker

Having worked as a Sommelier and a long history of working vintages in the Hills with the likes of Jauma and Lucy Margaux since 2011, James Madden decided in 2017 it was his time.

Working out of Schulkin’s shed in Ashton alongside Architects of Wine’s Dave Caporaletti, James's focus is on sourcing the right organic fruit and he refuses to use any sulphur in the wines. The approach he takes is experimental, playful and fun. The wines are anything but normal for the grape variety that is on offer, but will never disappoint.
