The MadFish Pinot Noir is sourced from the Mount Barker subregion of the Great Southern. With some of the world’s oldest recorded geology, imposing granite outcrops, and a cool maritime climate, it presents a distinct terroir especially promising for the cultivation of fine WA Pinot Noir.
Mount Barker stretches west to east and is 40 kilometres to the north of the Southern Ocean, with a cool maritime climate that is strongly influenced by cold ocean air. This moderates the daily temperature during the growing season to allow for longer ripening and the development of complex flavour profiles which then translate from grape to wine. With very little soil disturbance or erosion over many centuries, even the soil material itself is highly distinctive. The result of these unique aspects of this prized subregion is an exuberant, smooth red wine that celebrates varietal purity and fruit freshness.
