We've always wanted to be known for making the greatest Fiano in Australia - and some may argue that's true - but we internally still have a carrot to chase to really stamp our authority on that claim. So this brings us to our brand new release: Birdwood

We've flirted with the use of oak in our white wines for a while, but with this release, it seems apt to utilise it to amplify the best parcel of Adelaide Hills Fiano we received in 2022. The goal here was to use oak with a deft hand to enhance Fiano to another level, without overbearing the beautiful fruit underneath. Not to toot our own horn too much, but we feel like we've nailed it.

Aromatically it's lime oil, jasmine & frangipani florals with the quartz-like minerality that you expect from our Adelaide Hills Fiano, but enveloped in spicy, nutty oak. It's texturally beautiful as Fiano should be, with the grapefruit pith, finger lime, and green apple tang that's the centrepiece of the variety from this region, framed well with classic vanilla oak hits. Racy acid brings it all together.
