LA ZONA Fiano 2017
This is just the second release and the latest in a long line of innovative varietals in the La Zona collection of Mediterranean varietal wines. The 2017 fiano is bright straw in colour with yellow lime hues. The nose has generous fruit aromas of melon, lychee and gooseberry. Tropical fruit and citrus flavours form part of the silky palate that persists well into a refreshingly crisp finish.
COLOUR: Pale straw with light green hues.
AROMA: Generous fruit aromas of melon, lychee and paw paw.
PALATE: Tropical fruit and citrus flavours with a pronounced acidity, silky texture and a persistent finish.
“The fruit is harvested when its flavours are fully developed and the naturally high acidity levels have reduced. Once crushed the skins and juice soak for three hours to build body and generosity of flavour before the juice is drained off then settled to clarify before being fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve fruit flavours. A short maturation period on lees during winter also helps with flavour development before bottling.” Warren Proft, winemaker
