Cool and moist conditions through spring and summer 2022/2023 produced a long and steady ripening period, with intense flavour development and natural acid retention in the grapes.

Fiano is thought to have been the grape behind the Roman wine Apianum that was produced in the hills above Avellino in Campagnia, Italy. The wine was produced by a grape known to the Romans as vitis apiana, with the root of apiana being the Latin for bees.  Fiano is grown by Simon Robertson and team on deep red loam at Tumblong in the Gundagai region, and Peter Mullany and family on deep red granitic loam near Wombat in the Hilltops region.

The grapes were harvested at around 12.8 Baume. The fruit was pressed and fermented in stainless steel, on full solids.  Fermentation was conducted at around 18 degrees Celsius, before clarification and bottling.

Delicate hints of white flowers, lemon, herbs and almonds yield to a dry, crisp palate with citrus notes and a finish characterised by freshness and minerality.  Marries beautifully with soups, shellfish, fresh cheeses such as buffalo mozzarella and legume dishes.
