2021 Hand Crafted Fiano
By Hand Crafted
Story: Fiano is a white Italian variety grown primarily in the Campania region in the south, and also on the island of Sicily. Known for its low yields, strong flavours and intense aromas, this is a variety to watch in the years to come.
Vintage: 2021 will be one for the record books in more than one way but as far as vineyards across South Australia are concerned it was near perfect. Higher than average rainfall over winter allowed vines to produce good canopy and the cool – dry summer gave us beautiful even ripening conditions. This slow ripening allows great flavour development and retention of natural acidity.
Nose: The nose offers subtle, attractive aromas of peaches with a twist of lime.
Palate: The palate is elegant and crisp with appealing stone fruit flavours and a refreshing, zesty finish.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with fried whitebait and a roast garlic aioli.
Cellaring: Drink now
