“Excellent retention of deep purple hue; this has a staggering amount of savoury black fruits, spice and liquorice for a wine at this price; the texture and structure are likewise admirable.”
James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015

Premium fruit from the Great Southern and Margaret River wine regions was especially selected for the 2010 MadFish Shiraz. The vintage produced Shiraz grapes with strong colour development, ripe flavour characters and a mature tannin structure. The warm, long and dry growing season was the crucial element to the quality of the wines produced from this great 2010 vintage.
Once harvested, the grapes were then fermented in stainless steel tanks with traditional pump-overs carried out each day to aid fruit and tannin development. The parcels of fruit were then pressed to French and American oak barriques for 12 months maturation to encourage wine development and structural complexity. The use of French oak allowed for the integration of dusty savoury tannins, and the American oak introduced rich, toasted vanillin flavours.

A rich, dark, cherry red wine with great colour density. The wine displays aromas of black pepper spice, ripe plum compote, five spice powder and toasty oak. This full-bodied wine is driven by concentrated fruit flavours of chocolate and black cherries, subtle savoury textures and fine, soft tannins.
