"MMAD is an exciting new project by Michael Hill Smith MW, Martin Shaw, Adam Wadewitz and David LeMire MW (M,M,A,D). If you like the wines of Shaw + Smith and/or Tolpuddle then you’re likely to dig these wines, because they exhibit that same kind of care and consideration. The jewel that is the Blewitt Springs sub-region proved too strong a lure; they liked it so much they bought the company (or, in this case, the vineyard). There’s old vine Chenin involved here, planted in 1964, with some more recent plantings involved too. A variety of techniques were employed in this wine’s vinification but some skin contact was allowed, as was time in concrete vats, as was time in puncheons. Seriously good wine. Intense, textural, a bit of x-factor and a finish that goes on and on. Citrus juice and rind, river stones, a peppery note, a hint of the sea. Some honey or perhaps honeyed but notes in there too; whispers on that sea breeze. Refined and powerful at once. MMAD has hit the ground running." - 94 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
