About Madfish Red Wine
The ancient soils of the Margaret River and Great Southern regions date back 1.6 billion years, making them some of the oldest recorded geology of any viticultural area in the world. Generally speaking, the soils of MadFish vineyards are gravel based with a layer of clay beneath. The gravel soil is free draining and retains heat, aiding the ripening of the grapes. The underlying clay holds essential water stores for the vines to draw upon throughout the dry growing season. The clay lies far beneath the gravel encouraging the roots of the vines to grow deep into the soil making them sturdier and more resilient. The combination of these two distinct elements lead to balanced red wines with ripe fruit flavours that maintain acidity and therefore freshness.
MadFish wines are unique in that they are crafted from different regions within Western Australia, allowing the winemakers to draw upon the strength of each region to craft bold red wine. This allows for a variety of styles to be included in the range without compromising on quality.
The Margaret River region excels in its production of Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. These dry red wines display power, concentration, structure and elegance with fruit that is irresistibly ripe. These are the very attributes that made Margaret River red wine the international success it is today.
