2018 Sherrah Skin Party Fiano

McLaren Vale, SA

Funkified Fiano from an excellent McLaren Vale winemaker. "Smashable"!



About The Wine

Winemaker Alex Sherrah takes a walk on the wild side with this skinsy iteration of Fiano from McLaren Vale.

With three weeks on skins, this wine is savoury and stylish, a more texturally intriguing side of this wonderful Italian variety.

Alex is really hitting his straps under his own label, this exciting take on McLaren Vale's new hero white variety is just one more feather in his cap.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"It’s best not served too cold, and also better after being open for a day, so perhaps leave it settle in bottle for a year or two, and while that’s maybe not the intent, wines with a bit of skin contact invariably look better with some bottle age. Has a Juicy Fruit gum aromatic, though a little more subdued than that, brine, almond, perhaps some fennel. Light, fresh, again briny, but attractive pear and fresh apricot flavour, cool fine acidity, and very fine almost milky tannin. Pulls savoury on the finish, a preserved lemon and quinine tang in the aftertaste, with the invitation to come back for more. Nice. Smashable too." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
