Tellurian Fiano 2015

Tellurian have recently put their own Fiano in the ground with the aim to be using 100% of it in years to come. For now the fruit comes off the Chalmers vineyard.

A crisp and refreshing style, some complexity is delivered via whole bunch pressing. Free run juice went to stainless steel and pressings sat on lees in old French oak for three months. Citrus fruits dominate here, more in the lemon curd realm. A subtle nuttiness and spice are present and are slowly drawn out. The acidity is tart and high on the palate. Lemons hang long and there is some texture to note. Fish and chips by the water/ beach spring to mind.

Not a bad first up effort.

Drink now.

Good.
