The winemaker’s advice: “Don’t Google the words Skin Party!” Fiano fermented on full skins for approximately 3 weeks, before pressing into seasoned oak.
“It’s best not served too cold, and also better after being open for a day, so perhaps leave it settle in bottle for a year or two, and while that’s maybe not the intent, wines with a bit of skin contact invariably look better with some bottle age. Has a Juicy Fruit gum aromatic, though a little more subdued than that, brine, almond, perhaps some fennel. Light, fresh, again briny, but attractive pear and fresh apricot flavour, cool fine acidity, and very fine almost milky tannin. Pulls savoury on the finish, a preserved lemon and quinine tang in the aftertaste, with the invitation to come back for more. Nice. Smashable too.” 92 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
