The Winemaker

'A great human making great wines. It is rather interesting how often good energy flows through into grapes, and Hamish Young's infectious passion ensures he surrounds himself with like-minded people, sourcing fruit from local growers from around the Canberra region. His early wines were instant hits, and his 2022 Pinot Gris is bang on.'

The Wine

Picked early while the fruit holds natural acidity and then a bit of skin contact to build the wine's texture. Lemon guava, spiced pears, mandarin peel with tear drop texture which lends itself to hitting the mark alongside spaghetti vongole.
