Tim Wildman

Riverland

Tim is a British born MW who runs his own independent portfolio wine business. He became a Master of Wine in 2008 writing his Dissertation on Australian wine, and in 2010 he established James Busby Travel to take wine trade professionals on educational tours of Australia. He noticed the explosion of pétillant naturel wines in Australia and started his own project five years ago under the Astro Bunny and Heavy Pétting labels. He is working with Mediterranean varietals in the Riverland which suit the hot dry climate there. You can see his MW attention to detail in the winemaking: he's experimented over the years to get the style right; and keeps his wines back over winter, where many other producers release for the Aussie Christmas market, to achieve the texture and depth of flavours he's looking for. With their jewel bright colours, striking labels and refreshing drinkability you're going to want these wines on your list.
