Mad Fish Sauvignon Blanc Semillion Case of six

From the southwest of Western Australia, the pairing of these two famous grape varieties has, over time, evolved into the region’s signature white wine – nobody does it better!

The success of this wine is driven by the diverse contribution each variety brings to the blend.

Sauvignon is the star of the show. Upfront, fresh, lovely, highly aromatic, very showy. Semillon on the other hand is all about weight and viscosity, length and structure. The more reserved character, behind the scene, holding the show together.

And like any great performance, you can’t have one without the other. This noble blend aptly reflects on the past, present and future of fine winemaking in Western Australia.

The 2018 season

The summer holiday period that precedes the grape harvest is often a great indicator of wine quality and style. Unlike the mild summer of 2017, 2018 was warm and dry – ideal outdoors weather and very much conducive to drinking SBS.

As summer turned to autumn the weather remained fine and mild, allowing all grapes to ripen fully with little delay to maturity. Our winemakers were able to time the harvest to occur when the flavour and balance in the grapes was absolutely optimal. The end result is white wines with pure, focused and well defined varietal notes.

When to Drink and With What

Enjoy now and over the next year with a Sicilian calamari salad or any host of fresh simple flavour combinations – or for something more sophisticated, try a chicken roulade with prawn and dill stuffing, fennel and asparagus.

Tasting notes

The 2018 MadFish SBS leads with an assertive yet delightfully fresh bouquet of tropical fruits mingling with Meyer lemon zest and sweet garden herbs, with lingering notes of kiwi and rockmelon.

The palate is a symphonic display of intense vibrant fruit enmeshed with a soft yet persistent acidity which spreads the Sauvignon Blanc derived tropical and citrus flavours across the mouth, where they mingle with supporting textural characteristics from the Semillon. The finish is clean, refreshing
