As many of you may be aware, Leading Australian Wine Writer James Halliday has just released his Australian Wine Companion 2011 edition; our MadFish Winery has again been awarded a prestigious 5 Red Star ranking. "Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity". This is given to wineries who have maintained their 5 Star rating for at least 3 consecutive years, with at least two wines rated at 94 points or above.

2008 MADFISH SIDEWAYS CABERNET SAUVIGNON MERLOT "Good colour, classic Margaret River style, tightly structured and focused, with hints of gravel among the Blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours; the tannins are well integrated, the oak likewise." 93 Points

2008 MADFISH SIDEWAYS SHIRAZ "Bright crimson-red; a succulent medium-bodied shiraz from Margaret River, even though the front label does not disclose this; there is a cascade of red cherry, plum and spicy fruit, the tannins and oak playing a support role." 92 Points

2008 MADFISH PREMIUM RED "Bright colour; skilfully constructed with all aspects working harmoniously; red and blackcurrant, cedar and a touch of leaf, super juicy and vibrant, with an underlying seriousness to the structure, a very good wine for the price." 92 Points

 2007 MADFISH GOLD TURTLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 92 Points

 2009 MADFISH GOLD TURTLE PINOT NOIR 91 Points

 2008 MADFISH GOLD TURTLE TEMPRANILLO 90 Points
