Four to enjoy - what to drink this week

Zingy WA white

Madfish 2020 Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon; $18; 4 stars (out of 6)

Today we look at varietal wine blends that are emblematic of the areas from which they come. This one is from Western Australia's Great Southern Region which, with Margaret River, have made sauvignon blanc and semillon blends a success story of WA white winemaking. Named for the beautiful Madfish Bay in the Denmark wine sub-region, the wine is green-tinted lemon and passionfruit-scented. The front palate has zingy gooseberry flavour, middle palate lychee, guava and musk characters and a mineral acid finish. Get it at burchfamilywines.com.au, Miamup Road, Cowaramup, and Scotsdale Road, Denmark, cellars and wine shops. With the Howard Park, Allegory and Jete brands, it is part of the Burch Family Wines portfolio. Drink now with seafood wontons.
