On of our top-selling Shiraz, and for good reason.
This is an elegant Shiraz with complex aromas and characters. Its texture and structure reward's cellaring with the use of French oak instead of traditional American oak giving rise to a wine of greater sophistication. Internationally renowned Wine Critic Robert M Parker Jr recently reviewed the 2001 referring to it as a "knock-out effort."
Displays an outstanding rich and vibrant color with a fragrant nose of black fruits, chocolate and fresh black pepper; classic Shiraz characters from the South-West of Western Australia. The palate is rich in flavour but with seductive lightness and elegance. Dark cherry fruits with spicy savoury notes are supported by fine tannin and elegant background oak. The Mad Fish Shiraz has sufficient fruit to allow early consumption but would benefit from short to medium term (5 years) aging.
