Pristine citrus qualities, brimming with grapefruit and lime zest and a clean and mean mineral structure. One of our finest examples of Fiano yet!

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.
Lemongrass, lime-leaf, guava, but there is that incredible flinty, reductive whiff that is always here when the wine is in peak form. As you may pick up - it is in peak form. So much grapefruit and quartz charging down the middle of the palate, with bits of jasmine and nectarine trailing in its wake. I don’t think we’ve captured the Birdwood soil profile so well in a wine before. You could chew on this acid for days. Alluvium feels special this year.
