Introducing our Valley Selection 2022 Fiano

Introducing our new release Valley Selection 2022 Fiano.
Our Senior winemaker Toni Pla Bou explains the winemaking technique for the interesting white Italian variety.
“The 2022 Valley Selection Fiano is sourced from a single vineyard in the Whitfield subregion of the King Valley, on a south facing terrace. The 2022 vintage was cool with abundant rain and delivered excellent quality fruit. The Fiano had mild conditions to ripen and as such developed great intensity and retained all of its natural acidity. Due to the high quality vintage, we were able to, for the first time, barrel ferment our wine and it was carried out on unfiltered juice. The barrel fermentation added complexity, texture and oak integration. The wine is filled with aromas of kiwifruit, elderberry, tarragon, blanched almonds, pine nuts, caramel, cinnamon and toast. The palate is full, intense and bright.  It displays depth of flavour and great persistence of both primary fruit characters and secondary ferment characters.  It shows grapefruit, nectarine, and other exotic flavours as well as light toast.
The wine is excellent with food, pairing with wash rind cheese, chicken and cashew stir fry or even a fricassee of rabbit.  Our Fiano will drink well for the next five years.”
