The Jericho Adelaide Hills Fiano has lovely aromatics of fresh stone fruit and fresh herbs. On the palate; freshly cut stone fruit of apricots and peaches with a touch of melon and lime juice with lovely structure and texture in the mouth. The wine finishes with a lovely texture and fresh acid balance. The palate is fresh and rich – stone fruits and citrus with clean, crisp acidity.
A wine with this level of texture and palate weight enables it to match a wide range of food and dishes; from richer seafood dishes such as salmon and cream based pasta dishes, to lighter meat dishes such as roast pork belly.
Blended from two small neighbouring vineyards in the southern Adelaide Hills. Harvested at slightly different times allowing full ripening and developing complexity and variety of flavour. Both vineyards were hit hard with bad weather at flowering resulting in low yields, but great concentration of flavour. The elevation and cool climate of these vineyards in gives elegance and lets the varietal characters of the grape show in the resulting wine.
Fiano is a strongly flavored white grape variety that is used to make the highly regarded Fiano di Avellino in Campania in Southern Italy. Avellino is a wine region in the hills inland from Naples.
