Clean and stony, our Fiano lends itself to a simple stainless-steel fermentation and maturation in the cellar. The 2018 was sourced from two neighboring vineyards in northwest Paso Robles that produce intensely flavourful fruit with plentry of lively acidity. Destemmed and crushed in the early a.m., the grapes are left to soak on its skins for a few hours before a delicate basket pressing. It then proceeds untouched through alcoholic and partial malolactic fermentation, then filtered and bottled in mid February.
This is a vibrant, and youthful style of Fiano. The nose has gentle jasmine blossom and citrus aromatics. The palate is assertive and textural with a fresh leesy character. Stone fruit kernel and starfruit flavours combine well with the bright natural acidity. A delicious wine.
