vintage

The 2018 vintage was moderate, mild and a good year to grow Fiano in Margaret River. Rainfall in early January renewed canopies across the region and resulted in beautifully ripe, varietally pure wines that are brimming with perfect, delicate, natural acidity.

winemaking

This select parcel of Margaret River Fiano was harvested in the cool night and transported to Millbrook in the early hours of the morning. The fruit was gently pressed taking only the pure free-run juice, before racking from any solids. Fermentation was carried out at cool temperatures in stainless steel to retain freshness, with a select yeast strain chosen to enhance the varietal expression of this Southern Italian variety. This wine underwent minimal fining and filtration prior to being bottled.

analysis

  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • pH: 3.26
  • Acidity (TA): 6.7 g/L

Not unsurprisingly for an Italian variety, this is a beautiful match with a variety of pasta dishes, especially those with a cream or cheese-based sauce. Try with spaghetti carbonara.
