A blend of Bordeaux varieties cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot from West Australian regions including the Great Southern, Margaret River, Geographe and the Blackwood Valley, this is far more than the sum of its parts; a ripe, juicy red that has been released fully mature and has that great intangible: drinkability. You've got to love the funky label, too. A terrific - and affordable wine for everyday enjoyment.

4 Stars - "A big, concentrated Cabernet that's sweet, balanced and flavoursome with tarry notes on the nose and good palate weight and length."

Winery Tasting Notes
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
The 2009 MadFish Premium Red has a bright dark crimson red colour of great intensity.
The wine jumps from the glass with aromatic black cherry, blueberry and chocolate characters.
These characters continue on to the palate with complex flavours of roasted coffee beans, mulberries and savoury dusty tannins. The palate is rich and mouthfilling with seamless oak and well balanced acidity.
The wine will benefit from 6 to 8 months maturation in bottle to allow the fruit to emerge; secondary characters will develop over a 2 to 5 year period when stored under optimum cellaring conditions.
