2021 Vinden Experimental Release Fiano/Verdelho
This is a spectacular skinsy number from Angus Vinden. I met Angus sometime last year, and we had a very exciting conversation about the future of wine in Australia and sustainability. Angus is a really passionate individual that I'm excited to showcase in our August monthly subscription case.
This mediterranean blend has notes of spiced pear, apricot, yellow apple with tropical notes of guava and pink grapefruit underpinned by a beeswax savouriness. There's a saline edge that makes us think of sitting in grassy dunes, the sea spray catching on our clothes whilst sipping on this tipple.
Unfined, unfiltered, delicious.
Where: Hunter Valley, NSW
What: Fiano/ Verdelho
How: If you're lacking dunes nearby, fish and chips and some kind of delicious salad would be cracking with this wine.
