Fox Gordon Princess Fiano 750ml 2017
Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Units Per Case: 6
100% Fiano (a Southern Italian grape variety hailing from the region of Campania)
Our Princess is seductive but not weighty and has delicate aromas of white florals, tropical fruit and an upfront palate of white peach, tropical pineapple and lychee, along with juicy ripe pear.
No longer an emerging variety, we have been making Fiano since 2007 when vines were planted in the cool Mt Lofty Ranges.
In the vineyard, a big sprawling canopy creates a full-flavoured wine. Caned pruned, the Fiano spends time on lees (stirred every two weeks) giving a lovely mouth feel and texture while producing subtle layers of honey and toasted hazelnut, finishing with a fresh note of orange zest.
Pair the Princess with crunchy Asian food, yum cha, sticky pork ribs and san choy bau.
