Our MadFish Riesling grows in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. This climate is called “continental” and is characterized by long cold winters, warm summers and not a lot of rainfall. Winemakers say Riesling is tough to make because there is nowhere to hide. It’s just you and the grapes, no oak, no malo, no tricks.
When we make Riesling, we strive to preserve and showcase clean, bright citrus and apple fruit flavours. Sometimes the acidity can be a little high so leaving a bit of sugar at the end of the fermentation gives a nice drinking balance – not too sweet and not too sour - just right.
