La Prova Uno Fiano 2021
Amadio Vineyard, Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills. This Fiano is grown by Caj and Genny Amadio, on their visionary Kersbrook vineyard, in the warmer northern Adelaide Hills. It is a great site for the southern Italian varieties where the warm and dry days are tempered by the cooler nights. Regardless of the vintage conditions Fiano keeps a wickedly varietal character of chalky minerality, coupled with a lemon pith/bitter almond grip on the finish, making a tantalizingly textured palate and savoury finish.
65% of the juice was fermented with fluffy lees in a stainless steel tank, with the 35% balance was juice filled straight off the press tray to old French oak for wild ferment on full solids for a delicious textural component. Vegan friendly. Bottled in July 2021.
