About
What a lovely drink this is... Icy cold, or warmer, either way it’s great in the glass.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 blend of Fiano and Bianco d’Alessano. The point of this wine is simple, "to deliver a vibrant yet soft and textural wine". A wine to go with anything and everything. Sam Scott is on the money once again. Gary Walsh said, "Icy cold, or warmer, either way it’s great in the glass." 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 a lovely drink this is. Pear, melon and raw almond, mixing fresh flavour, a bit of grape skin texture and bitterness, and a powdery, green melon aftertaste, with subtle herbal perfume. Icy cold, or warmer, either way it’s great in the glass." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From the Producer

Fermented separately and blended prior to bottling, mingle to deliver a vibrant yet soft and textural wine.

Fiano the texture and the soft medium melon fruits of Bianco d’Alessano - but there is also a bit of artifact tasted here too. The hand-picked Fiano was made in bright, tank fermented styles, Bianco d’Alessano crushed to the press for some skin contact.

Blend : Fiano (62%), Bianco d'Alessano (38%)
