The lime continues onto the palate, cashew nut texture, creamy brie notes, zesty acid, and a round weighty mid-palate.

Curvaceous with oodles of pleasure showing lime juice and lemon rind mingling happily with licks of canned pear juice. Soft touches of cashews make a welcomed appearance plus fine cinnamon and star anise to close. You’d be forgiven for sitting on a glass for a while - a good wine to evoke thought and discussion. The width and breadth on offer certainly aid that. Great stuff. 93 Points - Qwine Reviews length is driven by a chalky tannin, which crisps up the finish.
WINE & VINTAGE

Fiano is relatively new variety to Australia, and originates from the Campania region of Italy. Fiano is super heat and drought tolerant, being able to maintain acidity in
the grapes even in our hot South Australian summers. This minimal intervention Fiano is made with indigenous yeast, has no added acid and is made without the use of
oak.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2019 Vintage
James Halliday Wine Companion 2018 edition

Bright welcoming straw-green; the bouquet has the wild flower/bush/pine aromas
seen in other Australian fianos, the palate following suit with a strong, racy structure
embracing both savoury and fruity nuances - I’ll buy Olivers’ suggestion of kaffir lime. A
mouthfilling wine with attitude and natural acidity.
