THE WINE: Vibrant green hues with enticing aromas of paw paw, starfruit, tarragon, fresh almond and vanilla bean. The palate is weighty, full and textured with flavours of dragon fruit, honeydew, fresh tarragon, blanched almonds and buttered toast.

THE VINTAGE: The lead up to vintage 2023 was challenging to say the least. Experiencing a third La Niña year in a row made the 2022-2023 growing season a record setting year from a weather perspective. With volatile weather conditions at flowering, crops were down in the King Valley, but fruit quality, and ultimately wine quality, is outstanding.

THE WINEMAKING: The fruit for the 2023 Fiano was picked in early March at a ripeness level of 11.9° baumé. The grapes were crushed and pressed with cold settling overnight before splitting into two fermentation parcels. One parcel underwent a cool fermentation in tank with light fluffy lees over a period of 23 days to keep freshness and pure varietal expression. The other parcel was fermented on full solids in old French oak hogsheads to build layers of texture and complexity while still respecting the varietal personality. A single new Hungarian tight grain hogshead provided subtle new oak characters while championing the fruit flavours and providing an extra dimension on the palate. Both wine parcels were kept on lees with monthly stirring until bottling.
