Fiano Reserve

Produced for the first time on the East Coast, here, in 2015, Fiano is a grape of ancient ancestry in the vineyards of central Italy near Rome and Naples. A grape that adapts greatly to warm climates such as ours, Fiano has drawn the attention also of growers in south Australia and in Argentina’s Rioja region. We are truly pleased to offer this varietal from the slopes of Goodlow Mountain.

A unique and most challenging growing season, beginning with 8 nights of Spring frosts that reduced the yields. A wet late Spring, a record cold June followed by a very dry period in July, when we almost had to irrigate. Mid-Summer was a rollercoaster of rains followed by sunshine. At last we enjoyed a dry end of September for harvest. All white varietals show great aromatics, very fresh acidity, and medium structure.
