2011 Madfish Premium Red

imageA blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 7% Tempranillo, 3% Pinot Noir, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot sourced primarily from the Margaret River and the Great Southern regions And no, I did not successfully pick each of the varieties used while tasting.

Generous flavour and value. Fleshy and ripe but has counterpoints in the form of brown leaf, olives and herbs. Black fruits and gum leaf. Mouthfilling with the initial modicum of tannin getting a little grippier in the glass. It’s not an overly structured wine though. The emphasis is on slurpability. Fine drinking at the price. 90
