This is now one of the most planted Italian varieties in Australia in many regions. I was thrilled to discover that there was fiano planted in the cool-climate maritime region of the Mornington Peninsula, grown by Joe Vaughan in Tuerong.

Fruit was machine harvested on a cold morning, then sent straight to press. Four mature barriques were filled for barrel fermentation, the balance going to stainless steel, all being fermented spontaneously. The tank wine went to barrel after fermentation, and all the wine went through full malolactic fermentation. The wine was on lees until mid-November when it was racked and blended before bottling in late January 2020.
