“Refreshing contemporary wine from Australia, thanks to minimal intervention”
What’s minimal intervention you ask? There are a number of interpretations of this wine term, however to me it signifies that the winemaker lets the grapes speak for themselves. They add only what’s necessary (aka sulphur for preservation). So they are going along the ‘natural wine’ route however at the end of the day it really comes down to understanding a winemakers process as to how they have made the wine from grape to bottle.
Which brings me to this brand new wine label recently released by Pure Wine Co – Twill & Daisy. I was lucky enough to receive a sample pack of the wines, which I am looking forward to sharing with you over the coming weeks.
The first on the tasting block was this 2019 Fiano. Fiano is originally from Italy and it’s a white wine grape variety. I’ve noticed a few Fiano’s popping up over the country which I am excited about as I do enjoy my Fiano!
Here are our notes on the new Twill & Daisy Fiano:
It’s a lemon shade in the glass with a golden shimmer. On the nose I pick up whiffs of citrus, floral perfume, white peach, nectarine and a hint of honeyed sweetness. While in the mouth those floral and stonefruit flavours coat the mouth with a lick of pears and it almost has a powdery texture on the finish. The bottle was finished very quickly in our house!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
