Overview

Overview

The Saltram Winemaker’s Selection Barossa Valley Fiano is harvested from our vineyard situated on the Southern end of the Barossa Valley, near Lyndoch. 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

Vintage Conditions

The 2019/2020 growing season was characterised by long dry periods and regular heat spikes. The Fiano vine yields were lower than average, 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.
