2018 Minim 'Colbinabbin' Fiano - 6 Bottles

185.00

Take three for me on working with Fiano from this site and arguably the most focused and varietal to date. Less ‘winemaking’ going on here, with very occasional lees stirring through elevage and more time in barrel and bottle prior to release. Learning from the experimentation of earlier harvests and getting wiser my pick dates has given balance to this expression; ripeness with acid, complexity without the edges and less sulphur than ever before.

A full bodied, barrel fermented expression of Fiano, with crisp acidity and layers of spice and texture. Licks of tannin and grip owing to a little skin contact and a small carbonic macerated pot. Grapes grown by Troy McInnes of Chalmers Vineyard on the eastern slopes of the Camel Ranges, within the Heatchote GI. Barrel aged for 10 months in seasoned barriques. Bottled with 25ppm sulphur dioxide. Bottle aged for 5 months.
