A fresh white that exhibits notes of white peach, ripe pear, citrus fruits and hints of kaffir lime. Balanced with fresh acidity and subtle mid-palate texture. A complex, food friendly wine.
“Hand harvested. Fermented spontaneously with lees work in tank and the pressings shifted to barrel, before assemblage. Great promise. There may be better fiano out there, but this is top tier. A superior wine. Winning because of the optimal ripeness and additional textural intrigue, binding a sea-spray freshness with a savoury chewiness. Aromas of apricot pith, fennel, samphire, pistachio and marzipan. A long driver and an intense player. Delicious wine!” 2020 – 94 Points – Ned Goodwin, Wine Companion.
“A good fiano without the textural intrigue of the best examples. Apricot pith, lavender and lemon-scented spa salts abound, slung across a pithy thread of talc and mineral. Rewarding, though, is the juicy, effortless acidity and ambient fermentative funk.” 2017 – 92 Points – James Halliday, Wine Companion.
