2021 Billy Button Fiano - Alpine ValleysRegular price $30.00
Whats not to love about Fiano and this one is no different. Billy Button Fiano has aromas reminiscent of a bakery with warm bread and ginger snaps coming from the oven with lovely white florals. The palate is a celebration of citrus and stonefruit. Lemon lime pith and apricots tickle the palate with bright acidity keeping everything in place. A slightly spicy finish makes for gorgeous drinking.
"In all the years of Winefront – 20 years old this year – we’ve never had a fiano rate higher than 94/100, and only a select (very) few have reached that high mark.
This fiano from the Alpine Valleys is in brilliant form. It just goes Bang. It tastes of apple, citrus, wax and fragrant herbs mostly though there’s some nashi pear in there too. It has both excellent texture and intensity of flavour, and it sails confidently and emphatically through the finish. It really made me sit up and take note, and it’s not often that I say that with this variety. Due respect."
