The grapes for our MadFish Grenache Shiraz are sourced from two diverse West Australian regions, with Grenache coming from the Swan Valley and Shiraz from the Great Southern. Each delivers fruit with different flavour profiles that contribute beautifully to this classic combination. The resulting wine is deliciously easy-to-drink, yet layered and complex – a fabulous example of what WA Grenache Shiraz has to offer.
Once harvested, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with traditional pump-overs carried out each day to aid fruit and tannin development. The parcels of fruit are then pressed to French oak barriques for 12 months of maturation to encourage wine development and structural complexity. The use of French oak allows for the integration of dusty savoury tannins.
