Pilota Fiano is a member of our ‘Uno’ collection of wines, which reflect an exceptional union of grower, vineyard site and variety. Here being Caj and Genny Amadio, Kersbrook and Fiano.
Here Fiano is made from the first little pilot block planted in the Adelaide Hills in 2005. Grown by Caj and Genny Amadio in their Kersbrook vineyard, at the warmer, drier northern end of the ‘Hills. Sandy loam soils over weathered schist.
There are floral, spicy and citrus aromas with a sublime textural palate.
