WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Amadio Vineyard, Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills

This Fiano is grown by Caj and Genny Amadio, on their visionary Kersbrook vineyard, in the warmer northern Adelaide Hills. It is a great site for the southern Italian varieties where the warm and dry days are tempered by the cooler nights.

Regardless of the vintage conditions Fiano keeps a wickedly varietal character of chalky minerality, coupled with a lemon pith/bitter almond grip on the finish, making a tantalizingly textured palate and savoury finish.

The fruit was handpicked, chilled and then whole bunch pressed.

60% of the juice was fermented with fluffy lees in a stainless steel tank, with the 40% balance was juice filled straight off the press tray to old French oak for wild ferment on full solids. This is an increase in the textural component than most years and I like the evolution.

Bottled in July 2018.
