Upper Tintara Vineyard Fiano 2023
This Fiano comes from our Upper Tintara Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, founded in 1862 and purchased by my great-great-grandfather, Thomas Hardy, in the 1870s.
Picked in the early morning and transported to our winery. The grapes were pressed and the juice pumped into a stainless steel tank. The juice was then cold settled before being inoculated with a cultured yeast and fermented at cool temperatures for just under a month. At sugar dryness the yeast lees were stirred in tank weekly, increasing mouthfeel and helping balance the natural acid.
