About The Wine
Here's a great new look at Fiano from Garth and Kirsten at Vino Volta.
Breaking the mold of Swan Valley wine are these two. This refreshing yet textural white wine is just the latest in their string of successes.
The great thing about this variety is that it holds its acid brilliantly, even in a warm dry climate like the Swan Valley. Garth and Kirsten have hit this release right on the head.
Think pears, some citrus and a little stonefruit with gentle waxy texture and a refreshing finish with plenty of drive.
It's a lovely example of the variety.
About Vino Volta
Vino Volta is part of the exciting new breed of vanguard producers emerging from the Swan Valley region in Western Australia.
Between Garth Cliff and Kristen McGann, they have a collective four decades worth of experience in Western Australian Wine.
During his position as winemaker at WA icon, Houghton, Garth saw the potential of the great old vine fruit in the Swan Valley going to waste. The couple have made it their mission to turn the spotlight on this unsung region through a creative and diverse set of wines featuring the regional hero varieties Chenin Blanc and Grenache.
An ex-Houghton winemaker might conjure up thoughts of conservative wine. These creations are anything but. These are fun, flamboyant, and contemporary wines made with a sense of adventure and experimentation.
