Profile

Fiano comes from the Lacey vineyard in the Tatachilla sub region of southern McLaren Vale. Only a few kilometres from the sea and almost at sea level, it is a cool maritime influenced area of the Vale. Sandy loam over a limestone base, scattered with ironstone fragments. Grapes were hand and machine harvested, a small portion was fermented on skins until dry in a small open fermenter, and then matured in a seasoned French barrique. Pressings were wild fermented in seasoned oak and blended back. The majority fermented in stainless steel, using a mixed culture of yeasts. No fining, minimal filtration.

Bright and lifted aromas of lemon zest, white florals and hints of sea spray. Refreshing with delicate flavours of citrus and white stone fruits, the palate has a lovey texture with great drive and a moreish finish.
