This very well-priced Pinot Noir from Great Southern in Western Australia, is full of juicy red cherry & strawberry fruit with hints of vanilla and forest floor characters.
The winery takes its name from MadFish Bay, which can found near Denmark in Western Australia's Great Southern, an area where, apparently, fish go loco. MadFish are wines with an emphasis on enjoyment and drinkability, producing a number of styles, namely the much-lauded MadFish Chardonnay and Shiraz, the Pinot Noir is pretty good too. The range is designed to reflect Western Australias laid-back lifestyle; both the packaging and juice are right on the money.
As you'd expect from wines from the same stable as the mighty Howard Park, they are classically cool-climate in style with a real vibrancy of fruit and an abundance of cheeky charm.
