WINE & VINTAGE

Fiano is relatively new variety to Australia, and originates from the Campania region of Italy. Fiano is super heat and drought tolerant, being able to maintain acidity in the grapes even in our hot South Australian summers. This minimal intervention Fiano
is made with indigenous yeast, has no added acid and is made without the use of oak.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2016 Vintage
James Halliday

Bright welcoming straw-green; the bouquet has the wild flower/bush/pine aromas seen in other Australian fianos, the palate following suit with a strong, racy structure embracing both savoury and fruity nuances - I’ll buy Olivers’ suggestion of kaffir lime. A mouthfilling wine with attitude and natural acidity.
