The Madfish label, produced by Howard Park, offers pure, fresh and clean fruit driven wines that are often seen gracing the tables of cafés and at backyard barbeques from Broome to Rottnest Island on the coast of Western Australia. Its following is mirrored in Sydney and Melbourne where Madfish devotees are keen to share in a taste of the enviable lifestyle of the west coast.
Howard Park first released the Madfish label in 1992 with the Madfish White, soon followed by the Madfish Red in 1993. Today they produce a number of styles, namely the much-lauded Madfish Chardonnay and Shiraz. These contemporary styles are made from cool climate fruit with an emphasis on enjoyment and drinkability.
The traditional aboriginal water turtle design on the label is a symbol of perseverance and tolerance – no doubt characteristics displayed by the poor fish in Madfish Bay who are constantly under attack by their predators. View all Mad Fish Wines
