The old vines of Blewitt Springs are a precious resource, and an important part of Australia’s viticultural history. In early 2021, MMAD Vineyard was purchased by a quartet made up of winemakers Martin Shaw and Adam Wadewitz, and Masters of Wine Michael Hill Smith and David LeMire. MMAD takes its names from their first initials. The MMAD wines aim to reflect the unique terroir of Blewitt Springs and the rare old vines that thrive there, namely the Grenache planted in 1939, Shiraz planted in 1942 and Chenin Blanc planted in 1964.

From the first vintage for the MMAD team, and it’s hard to imagine a better season. Lovely mild ripening conditions provided a Grenache with an intense core of red and blue fruit. The grapes were mostly destemmed and fermented as whole berries in open concrete and stainless steel, before aging in used 500 litre puncheons.

Very bright, youthful translucent purple-red colour, with a complex and appealing fragrance that is spicy and layered, with raspberry, red-cherry fruit laced with dried-herb and spice notes that include clove and pepper. The palate is rich and elegant, medium to full bodied and gloriously supple in its texture. It's a young but quite sophisticated grenache: a superb drink already and surely has a bright future if cellared. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 95 Points
