Ari's Blood Orange Fiano, Pinot 2021
Notes from Tony, the winemaker... Here we have used Fiano and Pinot Noir. The Fiano comes from Grove Estate – from a tiny almost forgotten block hidden away in the back corner of a vast vineyard, where it was agreed their first ever trial of organic grape growing would take place. The first year was rough and the block cropped less than a third of what was expected. Loads of flavour from the little we did get. The result is a wine with a colour nothing short of spectacular, wild aromas of spiced cherries and a lovely blood orange bitterness to the finish. It is every bit as unique as we could have expected given the roller coaster the vinification and elevage of this wine put us on, and we’re so excited to be finally sharing it with you this autumn.
