Ballandean Estate Fiano 2015

There's something about this that screams summer in a glass.

From a vintage where much of the Ballandean Estate crop was wiped out by hail on Christmas Day, this vineyard which is a few kilometres from the winery was spared. And the fruit clearly loves its home. I saw these vines in November last year, many reaching eight feet into the sky before they were trimmed the following week.

Tropical fruit, pear skin, green apple peel and a white flower like perfume.
Add a little textural tease courtesy of some creaminess which is quite generous but damn it's fresh, clean and bloody tasty. Hard to reject a second pour that's for sure.

Drink now bathed in sunshine or in the pool.

Excellent.
