2021 Tyrrell's Special Release Fiano
The fruit was sourced from two separate blocks in the Broke Fordwich sub-region of the Hunter Valley.
Warm, dry weather in New Year, without any excessive heat, meant the vines had a stress-free ripening and long hang time for flavour development; all of the fruit had wonderful flavours balanced by a high natural acidity. Both blocks were harvested on the same evening when the fruit was at its coolest. This was the last white grapes harvest of the vintage. The fruit was lightly pressed before being fermented in stainless steel. A large percentage of juice ‘solids’ was retained in ferment to bring texture to the mid palate, resulting in an interesting, food friendly wine.
