Ever had a wine that tastes like you're drinking a lazer? Well, we've made one - Alluvium. We've worked with the epic Mylkappa Vineyards, which are just around the corner from our Gumeracha winery in Birdwood, who planted this Fiano (along with some Nero) only a few years ago - you wouldn't pick it after tasting this. Due the Adelaide Hills cooler climate, Alluvium shows absolutely pristine citrus qualities, brimming with grapefruit and lime zest but the real hallmark of this wine is it's lean, clean and mean mineral structure. It's like licking ceviche off a wet rock - if you're into that kind of thing...
