Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw colour with lively, steely green tinges.

Aroma

White flowers, citrus blossom-like perfume with the more classic Great Southern Riesling characters of lime juice and pear.

Palate

The palate shows tight and elegant citrus front palate fruit. The richness in the mid palate is offset by crisp, clean citric acidity to produce a delicate wine with no cloying characters and very good balance.

Winemaking Notes

A benign late spring and early summer allowed for even and clean fruit development and harvest of Riesling began in early March.

The fruit upon arrival at the winery was immediately processed to ensure the highest quality juice.

The juice was naturally fermented at 10-120C in stainless steel tanks and stopped at approximately 30g/L residual sugar based on a balanced palate. Further lees contact for 3 months has added complexity and texture to the Late Harvest Riesling.

About Us

The MadFish story begins in the far southern reaches of Western Australia where 15 kilometres from the quiet coastal town of Denmark is the picturesque Madfish Bay. According to local folklore, the bay’s tranquillity is broken when two tides meet. The fish confused by this natural phenomenon, can be observed leaping in the air as if in a state of complete madness.

Our Label

The artwork for the label was originally designed by the late Maxine Fumagalli, a Noongar artist from Western Australia’s Great Southern, who had a deep love for the land and the people of the South-West region.

Her designs reflect the Aboriginal understanding that there is unity between land, sea, stars, animals and people, hence the inclusion of all elements in the label’s design.

The traditional aboriginal water turtle design on the label is a symbol of perserverance and tolerance - no doubt characteristics displayed by the fish in MadFish Bay.
