Overview

Overview

The Winemaker's Selection was introduced to allow experimentation and special parcels of fruit to remain separate so that they can show their true colours. Senior winemaker Alex MacKenzie believes Fiano is an emerging Barossa varietal well suited to the region, demonstrating an ability to make complex aromatic and textured wines.

Lively fresh lemon and citrus blossom are interwoven with varietal lemongrass, almond kernel and fig. A textural delight and the perfect complement to flavoursome foods.

Nose

The wine has lifted aromatics reminiscent of freshly picked elderflower, a hint of tropical fruit, and complemented by citrus peel.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is fresh and textural with a seamless mouthfeel, showcasing bright flavours of citrus fruits and finishing with tropical fruits. Mouth-watering acidity cleanses the palate leaving you wanting. Moorish!

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2017/2018 growing season was characterised by long dry periods and regular heat spikes. The Fiano vine yields were lower, with adequate fruit canopy to protect fruit from any sunburn. Fruit quality was very good due to fruit reaching optimum flavours and ripeness, while retaining natural fresh acidity.
