Mad Fish Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

MadFish are wines with an emphasis on enjoyment and drinkability. They are for people who enjoy the pleasures of life: family, friends, food and wine. MadFish produce a number of wine styles, including Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Shiraz and Chardonnay along with some alternative varietals such as Pinot Noir and Carnellian. These contemporary wine styles are made from cool climate fruit and are noted for their pure, fresh and clean characteristics in which the flavour of the fruit is the primary character. In the spirit of Western Australia, MadFish wines are without pretension and without fuss. This Sauvignon/Semillon, a blend traditionally hailing from Bordeaux, has taken the more modern, approachable New World approach to this classic pairing. The wine is very pale with green hues. The aroma has real punch, driven very much by cool climate Sauvignon Blanc characters; snow pea, passionfruit and herbal aromas with some citrus notes. The Semillon provides some mid-palate intensity as well as some attractive lemon rind characters. The feature of the wine is the unoaked freshness, vitality and brightness of the palate with a core of very clean and pure fruit with crisp and refreshing acidity. The finish is dry and clean.

The MadFish range of fine West Australian wines are produced from fruit grown in the cool South-West region. This is spectacular country dominated by majestic karri trees with marron filled rivers and nearby white beaches, pounded by surf. Our story begins in the far southern reaches of Western Australia where 15km west of the quiet coastal town of Denmark is the picturesque Madfish Bay. According to local folklore, the bay's tranquility is broken when the two tides meet. The fish, confused by this phenomenon, can be observed leaping into the air as if in a complete state of madness!
