Lifted elderflower, smoky spice and cut lemongrass, all hallmark flavours of this refreshing variety.
Grapes were sourced from our Peters Creek Vineyard, Kangarilla which sits at an altitude of 330 mtrs above sea level. Fiano was grafted to 2.5 acres of Shiraz in 2013 and all fruit was hand harvested on 15th march, 2016.
A native variety of Campania Italy, seems to grow exceptionally well in the hills surrounding McLaren Vale. The fruit was hand harvested, chilled and then a combination of whole bunch and destem/crushed fruit being pressed with the juices blended together. Cold settled and racked bright before starting a cool fermentation at 14ºC for three weeks. Fermented completely sugar dry and then left for one month on yeast lees before being naturally clarified and then bottled.
