2020 The Hunt for Mrs Oliver Fiano Sparkling
$65.00 / bottle
Marjorie Oliver (nee Hunt) was our grandmother and family matriarch. This Fiano Sparkling was inspired by her amazing ability to make us all feel so loved. She kept us fed, looked after us when sick, never forgot the hot water bottle, ironed our undies, mended and knitted us socks, collected flowers and feathers, and was forever writing us little notes cut out of the back of old envelopes with pinking shears. Every time we pop a bottle, we celebrate everything she was.
*Maximum 3 bottles per OTT member. Not eligible for OTT subscription packs. Longer delivery times may apply.

The Hunt for Mrs Oliver 2020 is a wonderful follow up to previous vintage releases. Our winemaker Corrina has long been enamored by Champagne, so decided to try her hand at making a traditional method sparkling from Fiano grown on the Taranga vineyard. Corrina Wright is known in the wine business as the Queen of Fiano for good reason!
Lemongrass, cut ruby grapefruit, buttered pine nut, toast, chalky powder note, mangosteen / lychee.
Wine & Vintage
Methode Traditionelle means that the wine is bottle fermented, so that the bubbles are all created by yeast in the bottle during a secondary fermentation. Corrina worked with renowned SA sparkling winemaker, Kate Laurie from Deviation Road Wines. Fiano is not a traditional sparkling variety, but it has a very high natural acidity which is key for sparkling winemaking and is often made into sparkling wines in its traditional home of Campania, Italy. With more than 24 months on yeast lees, this wine was handmade in very small quantities and we hope you enjoy sharing it with your friends as much as we did making it.
Nutty lemon tang, fine bead, lemon meringue, chevre, fresh struck match, round, savoury finish.
Small Batch Production
Bright light straw
Méthode traditionnelle. This is a delicious mid-weighted fizz, creamy, generously flavoured and long. Having undergone a 2nd fermentation in bottle followed by extended time on lees, a billowing palate of cheesecloth and toasted brioche notes is flecked with fiano's pungent mineral, apricot, quince, baked apple and talc. Good drinking. 92 pts (2018 vintage)
