Higher Plane Fiano, Margaret River 2019
Fiano can be an exciting wine when it’s done right. This Fiano certainly wears its coastal Margaret River roots on its sleeve, with tropical fruit notes and plenty of spicy green apple and white currant to draw me closer. The vinification of this wine becomes evident on the mid palate. There is more texture and creaminess here than perhaps I expected, no doubt due to partial whole bunch press straight to barrel, the lees stirring, followed by 6 months in neutral French oak. Finishing on a pure and clean almost crisp note, this is an exciting expression of Margaret River Fiano.
