Description

Fresh and fabulous, our award-winning single vineyard Fiano is a southern Italian classic made modern by winemaker Dylan Rhymer. A Strangebird™ Wine Trail stand-out, Ballandean Estate is famed for our Fiano—we are the first to produce it in Queensland.
Be seduced by our Fiano’s intense bouquet with hints of tropical fruit including pineapple. The palate is fresh with an intensity that is created by some innovative new winemaking methods. The outcome is a flavoursome, delicious dry unwooded white that is perfect for our alfresco lifestyle. In a sea of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, Fiano is a luscious lighter-bodied alternative for wine lovers wanting to try something new.

GRAPE VARIETY
Fiano 100%, Ballandean Estate fruit

DRINK WITH …
Rich creamy dishes pair well with the savoury texture and mild acidity, which is similar to Viognier and Semillon. Try our Fiano with seafood fettucine, baked salmon, chicken, pork and veal.

WINE ANALYSIS


WINEMAKING 
Fruit handpicked in April 2018 at optimal ripeness. A mix of whole bunch and destemmed fruit was combined into the press. The juice  was  settled  quickly  in  stainless  before  yeast  was  added. Stabilised, no finings added, filtered and bottled, unoaked.
The vines were planted on the slopes of the Bellevue vineyards at Ballandean 850m above sea level. This fruit is perfectly suited to our continental  climate.  The  vines  grow  vigorously,  and  the  loose bunches  of  fruit  can  handle possible heavy  rainfall  in  summer,  as  the bunches  dry  out  and  do  not  rot.  The granite  terroir  is  highly conducive to the expression of fruit in our Fiano wine.
