2019 Fiano

SA

Pineapple and mineral acidity run through the length of the intensely flavourful palate, highlighted by fresh pear, melon and baked apple.

    Description

    Originally of the Campania region of Italy, Fiano was likely the variety that formed the wine known as ‘Apianum’ in Roman times. Curiously, ‘Apiana’ itself being a Latin reference for bees, Fiano has a tendency to attract bees whilst in ripening stages on the vine.
    Our bright, fresh Fiano is beautifully aromatic. Fruit sweet, it shows pineapple and mineral acidity running through the length of the intensely flavourful palate.
