Tasting Notes

winemakers note

I love being able to take the Fiano grapes in a style direction of my choosing. Light and fruity, or richer and textured. Finding that sweet spot is important and the Millbrook style lays somewhere in between, a bright, fresh, fruit driven wine with subtle texture to add interest and suitability for great food pairings. 

Emma Gillespie, Winemaker

colour

Brilliant pale lemon. 

aroma

Lifted lemon peel, nashi pear and green apple skin with delicate floral, spice and honey notes.  

palate

This is a generous, fruit laden expression of Fiano, with a moreish acidity and elegant saline minerality. Brimming with pear and green apple notes with a twist of fresh lemon zest, the palate is lengthened by subtle lees texture and finishes on notes of lemon barley, cashew cream and baked apple. 

cellaring

Enjoy now, lightly chilled.  

Technical

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 and largely in stainless steel to retain freshness, with a select yeast strain chosen to enhance the varietal expression of this Southern Italian variety. A small portion of Fiano underwent fermentation in barrel to add complexity and texture to the final blend. This wine underwent membrane filtration prior to being bottled.

Food Pairings

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 this wine with a rich parmesan based spaghetti carbonara.

Reviews

Chris Tilly, Clarence's Company Store (Sommelier)

Here is what Top Sommelier Chris Tilly (Clarence's Company Store) had to say about our 2021 Fiano:

"A criminally underpriced and over-delivering wine with grapes sourced in Margaret River. If your hipster nephew teases you about only drinking sauvignon blanc; this the wine to impress them with. The attention to detail in the winery for this wine has produced a serious contender for my white wine of the year. Bright lemon, nashi pear and crisp apple are accented by lovely bush honey with rounded texture and refreshing acidity."

Please note this review is not based on the current Fiano release which has yet to be reviewed.
