Fiano grapes enjoy the warm, dry climate of SA’s Riverlands, making them a smart choice to deal with climbing temperatures.
After 24 hours skin contact, the grapes are pressed and wild-fermented in tank on full lees, then given partial malolactic fermentation for 6-8 week before a light filter and bottling. This results in a wine distinctly on the dry end of the spectrum, with plenty of acidity complemented with the elegance of jasmine and white peach blossom.
Jade & Jasper Fiano is destined to become a staple of your summer lunch table. The palate-cleansing acidity and rich aromatic notes also pair well with punchy antipasto, succulent seafood and even creamy pasta dishes.
