2020 Limited Release Fiano

$30.00

This varietal is native to Italy, predominantly in Campania and Sicily as it prefers a warmer climate. It carries its own DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata Garantita) rating as FianodiAvellino in Campania. This is a fascinating variety in that offers some powerful aromatics both through ferment and in to bottle. The levels of tropical fruit aromas and flavours is extraordinary and with careful canopy management, loves the climate at our vineyard.

Planted in 2016, Block 5M (2.51 acres) utilises at simple VSP (vertical shoot positioning) canopy and is planted on 10’ x 5’ spacings with 1103P rootstock and Clone 1 Fiano. Harvested at 23.1 Brix, the juice was fermented for 28 days at 57°F before being transferred to neutral white barrels to complete the ferment. This allows for a very gentle introduction of oxygen to further enhance the aromatics.

The resulting wine has quite the presence. Its tropical flavours are supported by honey notes and some spice. The fruit dominates though, on both the nose and the palate. A touch of grip on the finish helps tie the fruit up nicely, it can be tricky trying to harness all characters. Surprisingly there is a hint of oak in the background which again ensures the complexity is focused.

Currently the winemaking team’s favourite white, we are excited to see how the wines develop as the vineyard reaches maturity and its full potential.
