A truly international grape variety, Chardonnay grows well throughout the wine producing world, exhibiting the particular nuances of varied climates and soils.
To talk about a wine made from Chardonnay is often a reflection on winemaking styles – it is a grape whose flavours marry particularly well with those of oak barrels, but can also produce a fresher, lighter and perhaps more modern wine in an unoaked style.
The latter is exemplified in this MadFish Chardonnay – a delicious expression of premium grapes from the southwest of Western Australia, offering broad appeal and versatility.
South West Australia
A fresh and vibrant array of tropical, citrus and stone fruit rise from the glass forming an attractive bouquet filled with aromas of white nectarine, papaya, cumquat, and white blossoms. The palate is lithe and lively, revealing rich layers of Bartlett pear, Golden delicious apple, and quince balanced by pink grapefruit acidity and undercurrents of nutmeal. An unoaked style, this wine shines due to its appealing assortment of summertime fruit, zesty acidity and dry finish.
Enjoy this wine in its vibrant youth, alongside rustic fare such as roast chicken and winter vegetables, or creamy vegetable soup. MadFish Chardonnay also pairs beautifully with the mild milkiness and clean finish of the mozzarella cheese in a pizza margherita.
Enjoy now or over the next 2 to 3 years.
