About The Wine

The emergence of blended, savoury and textural whites is such a great thing for Australian wine. Embracing new (and old) varieties. Making the best parts of them sing. Bring it on.

This is a four-way blend of Fiano and Pinot Grigio from the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley Garganega and Riverland Bianco d’Alessano.

The point of this wine is simple, “to deliver a vibrant yet soft and textural wine”, and the point was certainly achieved.

Campbell Mattinson said, “It’s textural but not in the normal way… In short though, it just works.” in his 91 point review. It’s one of those ‘greater than the sum of its parts’ wines, and will perfectly suit a variety of occasions, particularly the next time you find yourself at a nice little Italian BYO.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s textural but not in the normal way. Its slinky and soft but dry and chalky; it pushes and pulls, eases and then tenses. It tastes of grapefruit and assorted stonefruit, perhaps some spice, definitely some citrus. In short though, it just works.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
