Yes I’m a little obsessed with my unique white wine blends at the moment. This one is a blend of mostly Fiano and Chenin Blanc grapes – two varieties I love by themselves. And when combined, they are pretty tasty too!
I received this sample of the Sherrah 2018 ‘White et al’ from Good Pair Days (thank you!!). It’s made from McLaren Vale fruit in South Australia.
Fiano, Greco di Tufo and Zibibbo are the white grape varieties which make up this Cloud Cuckoo Land 2019 white blend from South Australia’s Riverland wine region. It’s crafted by the Wild & Wilder winemaking team.
