MadFish Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012

"Bright green-straw; has the full package of tropical fruits (guava, kiwifruit and passionfruit among many); fills the palate with its generosity."

90 Points - Coming Soon! Buy vintage 2011 now.

 

MadFish Grandstand Riesling 2012

"Pale, bright hue; a seductive bouquet and palate offering sweet lime, apple and a touch of bath talc make for a palate providing as much pleasure today as it will in 5-10 years time. Comprehensively over-delivers."

94 Points - BUY NOW

 

MadFish Sideways Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012

"Pale quartz; the expressive bouquet opens the curtains on an even more expressive palate with intense pea green, citrus peel, kiwifruit and passionfruit, finishing with good acidity."

93 Points - Coming Soon! Buy vintage 2011 now.

 

MadFish Sideways Chardonnay 2012

"Whether oak has or has not played a role in shaping this wine doesn’t matter, for its fruit-driven bouquet and palate have energy and length; grapefruit leads the way, white peach next in line, the finish long and satisfying."

93 Points - Coming Soon! Buy vintage 2011 now

 

MadFish Grandstand Shiraz 2010

"Strong purple-crimson; a lot on display for a wine at this price, with black fruits, morello cherry, spice and robust tannins all contributing."

91 Points - BUY NOW

 

MadFish Grandstand Pinot Noir 2011

"Light red; marks another stage in the development of pinot noir in the Great Southern; red and black cherry fruit has clear varietal character, and is supported by fine, but persistent, tannins. Great value."

90 Points - BUY NOW

 

MadFish Sideways Shiraz 2010

"Good colour; stacked with flavour contributed more or less equally by fruit, oak and tannins, so much so you have to wonder whether the over-delivery against its price (with discounting down to $20) isn’t over the top. A quaint proposition, I realise."

92 Points - Sold Out!
