Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Fiano is a white Italian variety grown primarily in the Campania region in the south, and also on the island of Sicily. Known for its low yields, strong flavours and intense aromas, this is a variety to watch in the years to come.

Vintage The 2018 growing season started slowly however the warmer weather helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather in January to April meant good development of sugar in the fruit and minimal disease pressure. A cooler than average March enabled ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development. A long slow ripening, particularly for red varieties, resulted in wines that will be remembered for their depth of flavour and colour.

Nose The nose offers gentle and alluring aromas of white peaches with a hint of limes.

Palate The palate is elegant with a soft, crisp mouthful of stone fruit flavours, followed by a dry, refreshing finish.

Food Pairings Try this wine with fried whitebait and a roast garlic aioli.
