Small Batch Wines | 2017 Fiano
It rained so much in Spring that a yabby floated down to cellar door The spring leading up to the 2017 vintage
was one of the wettest on record. We have recycled water on our property and we didn’t turn it on at all for the 2017 growing season- unheard of ! Picking was a month later than 2016. There is a dam on the property across the road, and a small waterway that barely ever runs the goes past our cellar door. The dam overflowed
numerous, and next thing you know- we have a yabby stranded at cellar door!
From the Wine Writers:
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.
