MadFish Pinot Gris is sourced from premium vineyards stretched across the South West, a region particularly well suited to the production of this variety. With its cool to moderate climate, sea breezes, and sunshine that extends long past peak growing season, the South West presents ideal conditions to produce high-quality WA Pinot Gris. The grapes ripen slowly accumulating complex flavour yet retaining their vibrant acidity.

In this southern corner of Western Australia, the Pinot Gris grapes ripen perfectly, allowing the winemakers to craft a unique and refreshing style. Light and crisp, yet filled with abundant fruit flavour, this Margaret River Pinot Gris sits happily in between the richer full-bodied French style and the zippy, zest Italian style.

Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio, is one of the traditional grape varieties grown in the Alsatian region of France and the Veneto and Friuli regions of the northeast of Italy. It’s easy enjoyability paired with its white peach, lemon zest, and cantaloupe flavour profile has catapulted it to worldwide renown. It is ever-increasing in popularity and as such, it is being planted more regularly in the cooler, wine-producing areas of Australia.


When grown outside of Europe, the labelling choice between Gris and Grigio is very stylistic. The French name ‘Gris’ suggests a white wine of reasonable body and structure with spicy, floral aromatics, while the Italian, ‘Grigio’, indicates a leaner, lighter drink with crisp acidity. Both Gris and Grigio mean grey – the name referring to the greyish pink bloom of the grape variety’s skin. If the winemaker chooses to ferment with some skin contact, the final wine may have an attractive brassy pink colour.
