Picturesque Madfish Bay is located in the remote southern corner of Western Australia. The bay's tranquility is broken when two tides meet. According to local folklore, the fish, confused by this natural phenomenon, can be observed leaping in the air as if in a state of complete madness. The MadFish wine range and label, first released in 1992, was named as an homage to this unique geographical occurrence. The superb climate of South West Australia has always been conducive to the cultivation of healthy wine grapes with attractive and vibrant fruit flavors.
This is an Australian wine using the most traditional, handcrafted techniques. Made in the Méthode Traditionelle, this blend is handcrafted at each stage of its development, replicating the techniques perfected in France over the centuries. The fruit was early picked from select parcels of the finest Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from our vineyards. Delicate aromas, flavours and natural acidity are preserved producing a light, fresh and fine wine.
The color is very pale with no hint of the red Pinot Noir grapes used in its formation. The nose is fresh and light with citrus and floral aromas complemented by some bready characters. The palate is again fresh and light with a fine bead and a crisp lively finish.
The MadFish Vera’s Cuvée Sparkling White NV is an aperitif style best enjoyed young with friends, food and lively conversation.
