Fox Gordon Princess Fiano 2017

Vibrant citrus and green fruits through to a zesty and mouthwatering finish with herbal notes.

Producer Note

Fox Gordon is a family run winery specialising in contemporary, premium and awardwinning wines from the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. From a diverse selection of grape varieties, each bottle is the ultimate fusion of wine and fashion. Made using the Fox Gordon philosophy of low input and low yield to give maximum flavour, while preserving the inherent qualities of the fruit and the site; these stylish wines are modern, bright and vibrant.

Vintage

In the Adelaide Hills the low winter and spring rainfall meant the vintage started as very dry and in some cases irrigation was required, which is rare for this region. Rain in late January was worth its weight in gold; the outcome was above average yields. The 2016 vintage has been hailed as one of the best all round vintages of the past decade, resulting in excellent quality fruit.

Vineyard

Kersbrook is on northern end of the Adelaide Hills where the climate is warmer and there is less rainfall than other areas of the Hills. The vineyard is situated at approximately 480 metres above sea level and has some very high sloped areas, with the Fiano planted on an eastern aspect. The vines are over 15 years old and are grown in shallow soils, which have a lot of iron stone through the soil profile.

Winemaking

This wine was made with minimal intervention. Cool fermentation preserved the varietal characters of Fiano. After it was pressed to tank it spent a week being worked on its lees, adding texture and complexity. Fermentation lasted for seven days and then it was bottled immediately to retain the freshness and purity of fruit.

Tasting Note

Complex stone fruit aromas with delicate undertones of floral and Thai basil notes. On the palate there is a great depth of flavour, with layers of texture and a long lasting floral and uplifting finish.

Serving Suggestion
