2020 Leaf Series Fiano

The Fiano variety was introduced to Australia from the Campania region of Italy where it has been grown since the days of the Romans. It thrives in warmer climates such as northern end of the 5 point Margaret River region. It is mid weighted variety similar to semillon.

winemaking

A blend of Great Southern fruit from our Mount Barker and Frankland River vineyards were fermented in small batches, and blended together to create this delightful dry wine. The Fiano grapes were machine harvested in the cool of night to retain freshness and to avoid oxidation. The grapes were placed through the destemmer to remove unwanted stalks before being chilled down to the bag press. Gentle pressing followed to stainless steel tank for cold settling of solids. The clear juice then racked to another tank for fermentation. A small portion of juice was also placed in old french oak barriques for fermentation. Wild yeasts were used for the fermentation at temperatures sub 15 degrees C.

tasting comments

Inviting aromas of spice and floral notes with a hint of almond meal. Ripe citrus fruit harmonised with a creamy and textural palate.

food matching

The fleshy texture of Fiano makes it a great match for creamy, savory sea food and pasta based dishes.
