Dilettantes Fiano 2020
Because this is a bit on the side. For a couple of years, it was just known as the #cheekysangioproject.
Then Marnie and Kate from Dilettantes thought it needed a pair!
Dilettare: to delight and to entertain.
Pretty perfect fit, really.
Single vineyard, Clare Valley.
Marnie and Kate grafted a Riesling block over to Fiano, because it is so damn delicious! Picked, crushed, wild ferment, then bottled. A little stone fruit, citrus curd and a fine tight acid line. The time on skins give the wine a lovely rounded texture to hold the intensity of fruit, and the acid leads into a long finish.
