Some of the most coveted examples of modern Fiano still hail from Campania, but they are made in a more unique and ancient style. While we are no strangers to skin-contact (ahem... Esoterico) we do not make a more dogmatic orange wine than Dreamers Creed. Hailing from our Birdwood vineyard, we skin ferment this Fiano in our locally crafted clay pots - traditionally known as Amphora or Qvevri - for 220 days. We make no additions - including bottling with ZERO sulphur - therefore taking nothing away from the style that inspired it. The Result? A mind bending and utterly unique Australian Fiano. The glass screams of walnut and burnt orange ready for your Old Fashioned with a phenolic structure of dusty tannins that ties this thing together. It's a funky and wild odyssey not for the faint of heart, but those avid fans of the style will be truly rewarded.
