Product Description

Tasting notes
Fiano is a highly regarded grape variety originally from the Campania region of Southern Italy. The nose displays an intriguing blend of lemon and honeysuckle aromas. Melon and citrus with an almond overlay combine to deliver wonderful palate richness and a lingering mouthfeel.
Viticultural notes
The fruit for this wild ferment Fiano was grown in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt. The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95km inland from the coast.  The Winters are cold and frosty and Summers warm producing a continental climate.  Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots.  The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining.
Winemaking notes
The fruit was processed and juice containing solids was drained into seasoned French and American Oak barriques. No commercial yeast was added with indigenous yeast from the vineyard and surrounds being encouraged to complete the fermentation. There was no intentional malo-lactic fermentation. Lees stirring to add complexity was continued until the wine was prepared for bottling.
