Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Great Southern Western Australia
MadFish are stylishly fashioned by the eminent Howard Park team, to articulate a taste of the West Australian lifestyle, to offer a whiff of the Freemantle doctor and a mouthful of sun ripened fruit, no matter where you are or what time of year. An approachable Riesling of refined balance and engaging complexity, riper white peach and melon flavours are supported by piquant grapefruit and citrus notes. Unadulterated and completely unoaked, MadFish is a fresh and affable, easy drinking young white, the perfect partner to relaxed luncheons.
In the spirit of the relaxed West Australian lifestyle, MadFish wines are without pretension and without fuss. The team at MadFish believe that good viticultural management grows healthier fruit and makes a better wine, while maintaining a healthier environment. The classic regional blend of white varietal grapes, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are treated to a controlled vinification without the interference of any oak to allow the complex fruit characters to dominate. Low fermentation temperatures achieve a maximum retention of fruit flavour and aromatics while ensuring the finished wine is completely dry. Early bottling has also preserved the fresh fruit flavours and vibrant characters of the vineyard.
Pale straw hue with tints of green. A wonderfully aromatic nose, bursting with fruity esters. The palate, like the nose, is also complex with many layers of fruit flavours and a clean fine structure. Again the riper fruit characters balance well with the leaner more elegant citrus flavours. The finish is generous and long with a clean acid thrust.
